Black America Web Featured Video

There’s a lot going on in America if the OWN show “Our America” hosted by Lisa Ling is any indication. The show deals with issues of impact all over the nation, profiling different people and covering various stories. The show has covered everything from arranged marriages in the Hasidic Orthodox Jewish community, the life of Native Americans on the reservation, underage prostitutes and the growing popularity of pre-teen beauty pageants. On an upcoming edition airing on Tuesday, July 24, Ling explores the challenges of people who are new to poverty and further along in the season she profiles several of the 15 million Americans who consider themselves “swingers.” Even Ling was surprised by what she found.
