“Nearly 40% of children in America are now born out of wedlock. This single fact is the main driver for why many fathers end up abandoning their children. The African-American community is hit particularly hard with the heart-breaking fact that 2 out of 3 black children born do not have their mothers married to their fathers. MSNBC did a courageous special focusing on this issue. Watch former NFL player, Tiki Barber, lead a round-table discussion of this tragedy and see the personal struggle he faces with forgiving his own father.
Then, Tony Dungy shares what he thinks is at the root of the problem for father abandonment with all races, especially in the African-American community, and what the solution is.”
Why do you think father abandonment is so high?
