ABC Face-Off: Why Educated Black Women Can't Find a Man

October 5, 2015

ABC News “Nightline' knows the subject of successful black women and their alleged inability to find a man is a hot topic.

How? Because they followed the Linsey Davis/Hana Karar segment “Single Black Female” that aired in December and ignited a firestorm that burns to this day.

In a NEW “live” debate being open to the public, and taking place at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center in Decatur, Ga., April 9 at 7 p.m, the question is being asked — Are black women's expectations too high? Who's to blame, black women or black men?

In this “Face-Off,” the seventh in the program's series, Sherri Shepherd, Emmy award-winning co-host of ABC's “The View,” and Jacque Reid, star of VH1's “Let's Talk About Pep,” will debate Hill Harper, “CSI” star and author of “The Conversation,” and Jimi Izrael, author of “The Denzel Principle.”

Steve Harvey, radio talk-show host and bestselling author of “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” and “Nightline's” Vicki Mabrey will co-moderate the debate.
