Prospects For Black Americа: The Moynihan Report Turns 50

May 5, 2015
RaceOther

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 aims 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.

This event hosted a three-part panel discussion and participants included Manhattan Institute's Jason L. Riley, Heather Mac Donald, Kay Hymowitz, and many others

Panel I: Reducing Crime Rates in the Black Community

Panel II: A Path Forward on Education Reform

Panel III: Restoring the Family

Concluding Discussion with Jason L. Riley and Juan Williams
