The Two Nations of Black America

There is a growing economic divide in black America. Today, America's black middle class is the largest in its history, yet roughly one-third of black America continues to live in poverty. This film measures the economic and social success of the civil rights movement and the gap between middle class and poor African-Americans through interviews with noted Afro-Americans and historical film footage.

  • "Incorporating interviews with Dr. Cornel West, Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis, and other notable figures, this episode of Frontline features distinguished Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., in a study of divisions within the African-American community. Shedding light on factors that have contributed to severe economic and cultural fissures, the program evokes a disturbing summation: while many black Americans reaped the rewards of the civil rights movement, this cultural document-made thirty years after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.-would be incomplete without focusing on the plight of an expanding black underclass. Distributed by PBS Distribution. (60 minutes)."@en
