After a year of a national debate over race relations in this country, this week’s episode of CURE America delves deep into “The State of Black America,” the first of many episodes on the challenges facing African-American communities in the U.S. When a deluge of news policies from Critical Race Theory, racial equity and reparations are part of the national debate and even as we are 150 years away from the Civil War and 60 years after the Civil Rights movement, so many problems still exist.
With a remarkable panel of policy experts and pastors joining this episode, we identify the issues that have set blacks back — poverty, education, out-of-wedlock births, single parent households and church leadership that has failed to help get people back to spiritual and Biblical truths. Further, the government solutions to these problems have not worked to solve them but contributed to the breakdown of the family.
The in-depth discussion with Jonathan Alexandre of Liberty Counsel Action, Ralph Chittums of Urban Red, and Dean Nelson of the Frederick Douglass Foundation breaks down the problems, but also comes up with some solutions.
Please join us for this week’s important episode on the cultural realities in African-American communities. Next week, we will address economic realities that need to be addressed. These episodes are in anticipation of a new study that will be released by the Center for Urban Renewal and Education in conjunction with the Claremont Institute on “The State of Black America.”
