According to The National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting, in 1970 70.3% of African Americans between the ages of 20 and 54 were married. In 2008, it was less than 39.6%. So can someone please tell me what happened to our black neighborhoods and the united black families who once occupied them? We'd like for you to listen and partake in this discussion on how the correlation and variance of these statistics have possibly plagued the future of our culture. Tune in for part II of this topic.

In 1970, 70.3% of African-Americans between the ages of 20 and 54 were married. In 2008, it was less than 39.6%, according to the National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting. In 1960, 22% of African-American kids grew up in single-parent homes. As of 2013, 55% grew up without two parents. The breakdown of the black family is even greater than before. Join us in discussing African American Culture and how families have been impacted.
With the amount of kids being born out of wedlock, siblings not knowing/getting along with each other, single parent homes, lack of conversation, multiple entertainment avenues that are not indicative of family etc, it has me wondering about today's Black Families. What happened to the Black family? Are the black families better or worse than they were in previous generations, etc?

Part two of a panel discussion that links how slavery and prisons have contributed to many of the problems facing Black Families today. The discussion will focus on much of the current research presented on this subject. How did slavery and the prison system affect the Black Family? Why were the systems implemented in American life? Why have these destructive forces been allowed to exist so long in Black life?

Tonight on Black Men Talk Radio we are asking the question:
Do Black American Women Prefer To Start Families With Criminals ? If they do prefer to do so, then we also want to know WHY ?
Many men who are "nice guys", respect women, and are good citizen are available and would make good husbands, boyfriends, and fathers...............however.............there is a Catch 22; many women do not want that in a man.............they prefer to start families with men who are unavailable or dangerous to society.
Abibifahodie (Black Liberation),
The response from our interview with Brother EJ Jones has been so overwhelming that we figured we'd bring him back to discuss the SuperBowl, sports, and the role/responsibility that Black athletes should have to the larger Black community.
Sankofa means that you look to the past to get what was useful there, and use it to move forward intelligently. February is known in America as Black History Month, but what about our Black future?? We need to know what we want to happen in our future. We need to know about the innovators right now who are creating and producing our future. Should we be following other cultures' ideas about what the future should bring? NO!!! Our future is what we make it...so let's talk about some recipes...
