Today, VH1 announced the second chapter of the original digital docu-series “Growing Up Black,” an unfiltered and in-depth look at the differences in the Black experience from one city to the next across the country by interviewing locals, community members and leaders to explore issues like their personal experiences around systemic racism, what it is like growing up Black in America, and the feelings and experiences around the Black Lives Matter movement today. “Growing Up Black: NYC” premieres on VH1 YouTube
The second installment of the docu-series dives into what it means to grow up Black in NYC, and how it is an experience like no other in the world. Featuring interviews with the legendary DJ Clark Kent, Chi Ossé (NYC City Council Candidate and son of Reggie “Combat Jack” Ossé), journalist Allison McGevna and others discussing the uniqueness of New York City’s culture and people, this new installment showcases how much the city has impacted their lives and immensely shaped who they are today.
