Nominated in the 'HEALTH/SCIENCE - NEWS SINGLE STORY/FEATURE' category:
Research shows that African-Americans are less likely to register as organ donors, which ultimately means they can often times find themselves waiting longer for certain organs. This video takes a look at why the topic is taboo in the Black community, and why they say more people should register to donate.
Nominated in the 'HISTORIC/CULTURAL- NEWS SINGLE STORY/SERIES/FEATURE' category:
For more than 40 years, Tom Joyner has been an advocate for the plight of African Americans, using radio, web and television as a platform to bring about social change and reform.
