At the 44th Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference, the Black Women’s Roundtable called on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to get it right and demanded he appoint black females to its Domestic Violence Advisory Board. The Roundtable called the current makeup of the board “totally unacceptable”.
The Black Women’s Roundtable today released a comprehensive report on the progress and challenges facing African American women over the past 50 years. The report looked at a wide cross section of issues including heath care, education, and employment.
