African American.  Black.  Afro-American. Negro. Colored. The "N" word.  So many names to describe the second largest minority group in this country.  So why are there so many names for African-Americans?  What does it say about race and culture?  What does it mean in terms of ethnic pride?  And how do the names get started in the first place?  On the next Another View the AV Round Table talks about the history behind the naming of the Black race.  Join Virginian-Pilot columnist Roger Chesley; community activist Bill Thomas; NSU professor Carol Pretlow; author, journalist and talk show host Wil LaVeist; and special guest, historian Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander as they discuss how a name can impact identity and pride.  It's all on Another View, Friday, January 10 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
