Black Families Matter: The State of the Black Family

Background

The year 2015 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the Moynihan Report (formally titled The Negro American Family: The Case for National Action). It explored reasons for the dramatic rise in out-of-wedlock births among African-Americans between 1940 and 1965 and probable consequences. Unexpectedly, the report generated a storm of protests, particularly from the emerging cultural left. It was soon politically buried, and with Moynihan’s warnings unheeded, the problems besetting African-American families worsened into the late twentieth century.

Moreover, the problems spread, as ill-formed social policies shaped martial decline and economic impoverishment that eroded the white middle class.

Objectives

The BCS Leadership Initiative will:

Give fresh attention to the report and its implications through a conference, a book, and a documentary film;
Call together leaders in the Black Conservative movement to hear scholars analyze new and often surprising historical research on the African-American family;
Identify and analyze six to eight initiatives that have successfully renewed contemporary African-American family life in recent decades (presenting an award to the best one); and
Examining the biblical foundation and identifying the role of church in building strong families:
Look for parallels from West Africa for building and supporting strong families in the twenty-first century.
