One cause that is dear to BMWK is helping to find missing black people. Missing black people rarely get the attention they deserve and any resource dedicated to finding our missing should be supported.

This month, TV One is also dedicated to shining a light on this problem, premiering their newest show, Find Our Missing.

From TV One:

Find Our Missing, a new, hour long docu-drama series for TV One, will put names and faces to people of color ““ young and old ““  who have disappeared without a trace. Each riveting episode features a dramatic and emotional tale that places the viewer within the lives of the missing person, along with reflecting the pain of their loved ones, while confronting dead ends at every turn.

 

From the moment of their disappearance the story back tracks to learn about the missing person from the people who knew them best ““ who they were, what made them tick and how they touched those around them. With each break’s cliffhanger and each new twist unearthed, viewers will be more than just engrossed in the story being told; they will want to help solve the case.

The show will air on TV One on January 18th at 10 p.m. EST.

    TV One has been creating some great original programming lately (minus that Love That Girl sitcom). I’m looking forward to see the impact that this show will have.

    I am glad that such a show exist.  Capable of being the black version of AMW but my question is, will this be a useful tool for us or just another ratings attraction?

    It is so ironic that this was posted today, I have a friend that has been missing since Christmas and there has been no major medi coverage yet. http://www.atlantapd.org/sys_missingpersonprint.aspx?id=158

    Family and Friends,  It is with much prayer that we are issuing this desperate plea. Our daughter Stacey Nicole English is missing. All of the information we have gathered leads us to believe she was last seen on Monday, December 26th. Her car is also missing. She has a 2006 white Volvo GA license number BRP 324. If you have any information on her whereabouts please inbox me or contact the Atlanta Police Deparment’s missing persons bureau. Please continue to pray with us for our daughter’s safe return.Pastor Kevin & First Lady Cindy Jamison

  • UGH

    Find OUR people…are you a different species? Youve got to be kidding me. RACIST

  • Peoples

    Wow, a perfect example of classic reversed racism! I can’t believe this crap is going to be on tv?? It doesn’t matter the color of your skin, if your missing they treat it the same. But every case is unique and doesn’t always bear the same outcome. You can’t blame that on the fact that “they” are white and received extra attention.

    I HAVE A BROTHER WHO HAS BEEN MISSING FOR 2 YEARS NOW. IT’S NOT LIKE HIM TO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH HIS FAMILY. WE ARE VERY WORRIED ABOUT HIM.
