A cache of new research from the Pew Center paints a picture of the modern American family – a picture in which the historically rigid roles and responsibilities of moms and dads are meeting in the middle.
But that picture has always been a bit different for African-American moms and dads, and the ways this cultural shift is unfolding reflects those differences.
“As such roles change, African Americans are included too,” says George Garrow Jr., executive director of Concerned Black Men. The nonprofit seeks to uplift children and families by building African-American male role models.
