dc.description.abstractThis thesis will focus on two different studies published in 1944 and 1965, that attempted to fill the void of sociological research concerning the African-American community. First, Gunnar Myrdal'sAn American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modem Democracy, published in 1944, was commissioned by the Carnegie Foundation as a "comprehensive study of the Negro in the United States, to be undertaken in a wholly objective and dispassionate way as a social phenomenon. And secondly, Daniel Patrick Moynihan's 1965 study entitled The Negro Family: The Case for National Action, was a study initiated by the United States Department of Labor to determine the situation concerning African Americans and Moynihan's observations on the worsening position of the black community.en_US
