From the #1 New York Times bestselling series comes the latest title in the Who HQ Now format for trending topics. It tells the history of a political and social movement that advocates for non-violent civil disobedience and protests against incidents of police brutality--and all racially motivated violence--against Black people. When a Black teenager named Trayvon Martin was senselessly killed in 2012, the African American community called for his murderer to be held accountable. But like many other racially sparked incidents in the past, his killer walked free. People looked for justice and healing in the moment. They turned to social media and a simple yet powerful hashtag emerged, #BlackLivesMatter. The message grew into an international movement and has now become the rallying cry during protests against police brutality and racial acts of violence. The movement gained even more attention and support in 2020 when it called for police reform in the United States after the police-related murder of George Floyd.

As a race, we can no longer hold the entire Caucasian race responsible for what their parents and grandparents did to our parents and grandparents because they had nothing to do with it. Through the actions of many men and women who happened to be white, I have learned that love has no color. Only racism, prejudice, and hate recognize color. We can't change the prejudice and attitudes of other people; we can change their attitudes by not living up to their prejudice. If we, as a human race, would forgive others just one-third of how much Jesus forgives us, there would be very little prejudice, racism, jealousy, and envy. As a race, many of must get out of this poverty mentality and realize that speaking proper English, getting an education and becoming successful are not limited to one race but open to all races. Many African Americans feel like they have to be defined by their race when in actuality, we should all be defined by our individuality. We have to come to the conclusion that we are one race; before we were defined by our color, we were the human race. We must understand that the best way to prove you are a man is to simply be a man. A real man doesn't feel like he has to prove he's a man, because he already knows he's a man.

Television scholarship has substantially ignored programming aimed at Black audiences despite a few sweeping histories and critiques. In this volume, the first of its kind, contributors examine the televisual diversity, complexity, and cultural imperatives manifest in programming directed at a Black and marginalized audience. Watching While Black considers its subject from an entirely new angle in an attempt to understand the lives, motivations, distinctions, kindred lines, and individuality of various Black groups and suggest what television might be like if such diversity permeated beyond specialized enclaves. It looks at the macro structures of ownership, producing, casting, and advertising that all inform production, and then delves into television programming crafted to appeal to black audiences—historic and contemporary, domestic and worldwide. Chapters rethink such historically significant programs as Roots and Black Journal, such seemingly innocuous programs as Fat Albert and bro’Town, and such contemporary and culturally complicated programs as Noah’s Arc, Treme, and The Boondocks. The book makes a case for the centrality of these programs while always recognizing the racial dynamics that continue to shape Black representation on the small screen. Painting a decidedly introspective portrait across forty years of Black television, Watching While Black sheds much-needed light on under-examined demographics, broadens common audience considerations, and gives deference to the the preferences of audiences and producers of Black-targeted programming.
