Today's Chicago Sun-Times points out the typically disparate media coverage given to missing Black women. The search for missing pharmaceutical sales rep, Nailah Franklin just may be the tipping point for change in media coverage for missing women who are Black.
Before Nailah's case, a blog authored by Deidra over at Black and Missing but not Forgotten, was posting information on many Black women who'd been reported missing. Thanks, Deidra.
Nailah means "one who succeeds." In a very bizarre way, Nailah succeeded in capturing the hearts and minds of many so that missing Black women will matter to the media also.
