Freedom is not Enough: The Moynihan Report and America’s Struggle over Black Family Life–from LBJ to Obama

Posted by on May 17 2010 | Child Protection, Civil Rights, History, James T. Patterson, Moynihan report

(David Kopel)

I interviewed Brown University history professor James T. Patterson about his book examining the tragic rise of illegitimacy rates, and the American political elite’s refusal to address the problem for decades. MP3, 50 minutes. During the course of our discussion, I mentioned my own writing about successful early intervention programs for at-risk children; that writing is contained in this Barry Law Review article, text at notes 214–28. (A much more detailed analysis is contained in my book Guns: Who Should Have Them?).
