Black Women, #MeToo & 'Surviving R. Kelly'

Earlier this month, Lifetime released a six-part docuseries called "Surviving R. Kelly." It chronicles the singer's alleged abuse of girls and women since the early '90s.

Since then, there's been a larger conversation on black women, abuse and when and if they're believed. How will the #MeToo movement intersect with #MuteRKelly? How was R. Kelly's alleged abuse allowed to continue for so long, and why did it take this documentary for his victims to be heard?
