I’m going to keep it real by stating; there are many negative images of dysfunctional relationships in the breakdown of the black family unit. Especially images of healthy relationships of love and marriage amongst black men and women in today’s society. There are more single black woman as heads of households then ever before, as society depicts lack of commitment as a reality for black men.
With the growing number of shows like Empire, Scandal and the negative influences of reality television; positive black images has lost its luster since the days of “A Different World”, “Family Matters” and “The Cosby show”. Let’s face it, gone are the days of The Brady Bunch images on television.
Fed up with the pervasive negative images of black marriage in the media, Ronnie and Lamar Tyler started one of the largest independent African American marriage and parenting sites on the web to combat the negativity of black love and marriage in the media, by focusing on positive messages about marriage.
Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” for my special guest Mrs. Ronnie Tyler (pictured left), founder of “Black and Married with Kids: A Positive Image of Black Marriage“. As we discuss she and her husbands campaign for promoting love and positive images in a black family unit.
