High Rates of African American Single-Parent Households
Why are the rates of single-parent households higher among African American families than other groups?
It has been noted, empirically, that rates of single-parent households are, in fact, higher among African American families than other groups. Why do you suppose this is the case? Do you believe single-parent households are problematic – for children? For adults/parents? Do you believe this is a challenge for the African American community which needs to be addressed? Explain.
