Variety Calls CNN’s Black in America “Vanilla as Documentaries Get”

CNN’s documentary series, “Black in America,” earned negative reviews from Variety, which calls anchor Soledad O’Brien’s reporting “at best skin-deep…This project is ultimately about as vanilla as documentaries get.”

With its three parts (“The Black Woman & Family,” “King Assassination” and “The Black Man”), the series, according to Variety, “seems like a Nickelodeon special for kids who have never met a black person–aimed at an audience completely naive about the African-American experience.”
