For Abi Ishola on YouTube:
According to the Centers for Disease Control, four out of five black women are overweight or obese.
In this video I profile Michaela Angela Davis, and image activist who works to promote positive images among people of color. She recently started a healthy eating and fitness program to address the problem among black women.
I also spoke with Tanya Fields, founder of the BLK Projek, a Bronx based food justice organization about the lack of fresh and healthy food in many urban communities.
