This article reviews the history of qualitative research on the black family during the twentieth century. Most qualitative studies on black family life focused on social class differences among blacks and between blacks and whites until the mid-1960s. In the final third of the last century, attention largely turned to the study of low-income black families, a fact I attribute in part to the publication of the Moynihan report.
