The Grand Rapids African American Health Institute (GRAAHI) is a non-profit organization committed to advocating for health parity in the African American community through promoting education and change in public health policy. Evidence based research suggest that there continues to be racial and ethnic disparities when it comes to providing health care and health coverage for minority populations in the United States. African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately 28% of the population in the U.S. but make up 43.1% of the 50 million Americans that don’t have health coverage.

Will The Shortage of Available African American Men Force African American Women To Marry Men Of Oth
What used to be undercover is now out in the open - men of other ethnic groups desire black women. Is the idea of marrying only within one's "race" obsolete? If so, with the shortage of available African American men, will African American women be forced to broaden their choices? With high profile men such as the former Mayor Richard M. Daley dating a younger, attractive African American woman, Dr. Adele Cobbs, perhaps other women will consider other options. How will African American men respond if particularly the successful African American women no longer seek them out as potential mates? What social impact could this have? Is this a step toward progress and a less "racially divided" society?
This program is hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire.
