I read an article that said that out of all ethnic groups, among men and women, black women were the least likely to marry inter-racially. With there being a noticeable increase in interracial marriages overall, I began to wonder why are black women least likely to marry outside of their race. And, equally, I became curious about the experiences of those who have.
Knowing three black women (well actually five ) who are married to white men, I decided to bring them on the show together to learn and explore.
The attached episode is entitled, “The Case of Black Women Loving White Men.” Our three informants are Roslynde Kosterman, Nikeisha Riseling, and Ardis Marshall. And all three of them told me they had something to say when I asked them if they were willing to come on the show.
