Top Issues Facing the African American Community

The African American Lectionary Project surveyed 10,000 African American clergy of all denominations in 2006 and found then that the top three concerns were: strengthening men and boys, strengthening families, and unemployment, poverty, and economic empowerment. The top-three issues of importance to African Americans in 2013, based on a follow-up, are: unemployment and poverty (particularly poverty among children), strengthening education for grades pre-k through 12, and strengthening families.
