Social Structure and Black Family Life: An Analysis of Current Trends.
Staples, Robert
Journal of Black Studies, v17 n3 p267-86 Mar 1987
The crisis of the Black family is actually the crisis of the Black male and his inability to carry out the normative responsibilities of husband and father in the nuclear family. The family's disintegration is a symptom of the institutional decimation of Black males, the legacy of institutional racism. (LHW)
