Two American Families

Season 2013 Episode 13 | 1hr 23m 41s

Since 1992, Bill Moyers has been following the story of two ordinary, hard-working families in Milwaukee -- one black, one white -- as they battle to keep from sliding into poverty. A remarkable portrait of perseverance, Two American Families raises unsettling questions about the changing nature of the U.S. economy and the fate of a declining middle class.
