The Black family, like all families, faces a crisis as we approach the 21st century. Not only are we faced with a growing number of unemployed family members, but we are also witnessing an ever increasing number of single never-married households. Less than half of all Black children are raised in two-parent families. Many of these children are poor because their mothers are poor. Middle class Black families are confronted with run away inflation. Many of them are finding it difficult to maintain middle class status on the salary of two working partners. The survival of Black people depends on the strength of their families. This course will discuss the African and Southern roots of the Black family. It will look at the Black family from an historical perspective in order to understand the contemporary issues confronting its existence.
