2019 Black Women's Roundtable Report: State of Black Women in the U.S. and Key States

Black Women in the United States, 2019, is the sixth in an annual series of reports released by the Black Women’s Roundtable, specifically developed to examine the overall conditions and concerns of Black women throughout the nation. This year’s report uncovers where Black women stand, juxtaposed between a historic electoral season which resulted in record-breaking political representation and the beginning of a high-stakes Presidential race that includes an exceedingly diverse slate of candidates, including the third Black woman ever to launch a Presidential bid. In many ways, this historic moment seems to be one in which Black women are asserting their power like never before. Yet, they still face substantial challenges related to a wide ranging of deeply entrenched issues that have seen little movement over the years. This year’s report takes a deep look at this dichotomy, and shares a multifaceted analysis of just where Black women are now, where we’ve been, and where we’re going.
