EditorвЂ™s note: on, Oct. 17, Heidi Stevens will be joined by Northwestern sociology professor Cheryl Judice to discuss Judice’s thoughts on black women dating outside their race wednesday. Get in on the Heidi Stevens’ Balancing Act Twitter team, where she hosts live chats every Wednesday at noon.
Cheryl Judice knew her guide could be met with a few skepticism.
She had written it anyway.
вЂњInterracial Relationships Between Ebony Women and White MenвЂќ informs the tales of black colored women that are dating, hitched to or divorced from white guys. She interviewed 60 men and women about their relationships вЂ” the highs, the lows, whether so when battle factored into those highs and lows, just exactly just what led them up to now outside their battle, exactly how their own families received their lovers, the way they had been gotten by their loversвЂ™ families.
ItвЂ™s an approach that is academic however with a demonstrably stated objective in mind.
вЂњIt is my hope,вЂќ Judice, a sociology teacher at Northwestern University, writes, вЂњthat presenting their tales can cause more women that are black deliberately look for to broaden their concept of suitable relationship and wedding partners.вЂќ
