Bloome comments on Moynihan's controversial 1965 call for national action to strengthen black families

a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"A report on the instability and economic challenges of black families is still debated 50 years later" - Deseret News National. 03/09/2015.

Calling Daniel Patrick Moynihan's 1965 report on the instability and economic challenges of American black families "infamous," Dierdre Bloome says that any policy to help black families should address economic factors. For instance, she says that since women are now the sole breadwinners in many black families, "what kinds of jobs women have and how much women are being paid in those jobs is extremely important for economic equality between African-Americans and whites."
