Anne featured in recent stories in USA Today and the Miami Herald

May 22, 2012

Anne spoke recently with USA Today lifestyle reporter Carol Memmott about the meaning, use and acceptability among different age groups of the “b” word in reference to women. The article, “New TV series scratch the B-word itch,” examined the decision by two broadcast networks to uses the “b” word in the title of new shows in their spring schedule.

In the Miami Herald, Anne traced with Audra Burch the roots and changing connotations of various terms such as black, person of color, and African-American through American history.“The larger issue is that over the years, people of the African diaspora lost the right to name themselves,” she shared. “It’s not really about what is right or wrong but how people see and think of themselves, which is a personal choice.’’
