Prospects For Black America: The Moynihan Report Turns 50

10:48am—10:45am
Tuesday May 5
Tuesday May 5 2015
PAST EVENT Tuesday May 5 2015

In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan released his landmark study, The Negro Family: The Case for National Action, as President Lyndon B. Johnson rolled out his anti-poverty initiatives. Fifty years later, the noble goals that inspired such efforts have eluded too many African-Americans.

By exploring broad trends in education, social welfare, and criminal justice, this special Manhattan Institute symposium will aim to shape the national conversation—intensified by recent tragedies in North Charleston, SC, and Ferguson, MO—on how best to ensure opportunity and equity for all Americans. Please join us as distinguished journalists, public intellectuals, policy experts, and political leaders discuss the past, present, and future of America's black community.

Event participants included Manhattan Institute's Jason L. Riley, Heather Mac Donald, Kay Hymowitz, and many others.
