National Congress of Black Women Watch Party, Wachington DC


WHO: National Congress of Black Women, Inc.

WHAT: “Hot Ghetto Mess” Viewing Party

(Viewing parties are being held across the nation in cooperation with

What About Our Daughters.)

WHEN: Wednesday, July 25, 2007, 9:00 p.m.

WHERE: Southwest Washington, D.C. (TBA—NCBW Members Only)

WHY: Hot Ghetto Mess is slated to premiere on BET on Wednesday, July 25, 2007

    Although it has not yet aired, the program has generated lots of media notice and opinion.

    For many, the very title - Hot Ghetto Mess - arouses negative emotions. The comments about the show on BET’s own website are overwhelmingly negative. The website of the same name shows photos of young children in situations that experts believe border on child abuse – such as children with guns and beer cans in their mouths. BET says that the television show is not a carbon copy of the website.

We want our members to evaluate the show. If the show has no redeeming social value, sponsors will hear from us.

Space is limited. For more information, or to RSVP, call NCBW at 202/678-6788.
