* BET News will take viewers straight to the capital of the most obese state in the country, Jackson, Mississippi to examine why African-Americans are disproportionally more obese then other Americans. It reveals a perfect storm of socioeconomic, cultural, environmental elements, and individual lifestyle choices, that have caused so many of Jackson’s citizens to become obese. Nationally close to half of all African-American women are obese and almost one out of every three Mississippians is obese. However, even in the face of these grim statistics there is hope. www.bet.com/heartofthecity .
