Black women in the U.S. appear to be shrinking

Call her The Incredible Shrinking African-American Woman

In an age when the adult populations of most industrialized nations have grown significantly taller, the average height of black women in the U.S. has been receding, beginning with those born in the late 1960s. The difference in stature between white women and black women has now stretched to three-quarters of an inch and appears to be increasing, according to newly released data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The main culprit appears to be diet. Read more from an article in the Chicago Tribune>>

I believe we have found evidence of this fact; although this example is quite dramatic and not typical of the height lost among Black women.
