Panelists discussed ways of maintaining family cohesiveness in the African-American community. Topics included innovative social structures such as those which could serve as teachers for youth who have no fathers. John McWhorter participated from the audience.

“Restoring the Family” was a panel of the symposium “Prospects for Black America: The Moynihan Report Turns 50,” held at the National Press Club to mark the 50th anniversary of then-Assistant Labor Secretary Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s study on the causes of black poverty in America. close
