Tonight, we're talking about rape culture, laying it out for you and discussing where we see rape culture take place. We're going to explore rape culture in the Black community and how it manifests as violence against Black women.

We'll also be discussing how rape culture is perpetuated in “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” an advice book on romance written by Steve Harvey, popular comedic entertainer and radio host in both mainstream and Black communities who's been married and divorced three times. The best-selling book and popular film offer advice about romance from the Black male perspective to a predominantly female audience. We'll be talking to a variety of Black women on how they feel about the book and film and what they think about rape culture and it's impact on the Black community.
