This program examines the history and traditions of the African-American family and takes a look at contemporary family life, considering stressful situations such as economic pressure, rising health care costs, divorce, and the complications of raising children in a culture where the effects of crime can be an everyday concern. Hosted by actor Danny Glover (star of the Lethal Weapon movies) and Academy Award-winning actress Esther Rolle of Driving Miss Daisy, the program features interviews with Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Vanessa Williams. This is one volume in the four-part series, Images & Realities, which examines contemporary concerns and issues faced by African-American people, and discusses how solutions can be found through nurturing, shared values, and a sense of community. ~ Alice Duncan, Rovi
