The AMBCC Women’s League will frequently host a series of roundtables, workshops, and conferences designed to expose overlooked challenges and triumphs that women of African decent face in the areas of health, education and relationships. Health Issues: Due to the lack of knowledge, trust of the health care system, and access to life-saving treatments, African American women are 85 percent more likely to develop diabetes and 30 percent more likely to die from breast cancer and heart disease than white women. Career Issues: Two-thirds of black undergraduate students are women. At historically black colleges, the ratio of women to men is over 10 to 1. African American women have surpassed black men in college enrollment and business ownership. Exploration of the sacrifice and success of women will be conducted. Relationship Issues: The percentage of African-American women between 25-54-years- old who have never been married has doubled from 20 percent to 40 percent compared to 16 percent of white women have never been married. Examination of the implications of these statistics and how they are redefining black families and their social structure will be an ongoing area of focus.
