1986 SPECIAL REPORT: “THE VANISHING BLACK FAMILY”

“What happened over the past decades to the once stalwart and steadfast American black family, the backbone of the black community, are shocking and distressing. In an unflinching account that tries to understand why this disintegration started and why it continues, CBS News gives life to the statistics through intimate portraits of young black adults facing the emotional and financial difficulties of single parenthood. With its candor and openness, “The Vanishing Family” may very well be the most important documentary in recent memory.”
