Play associated audio

A two-day summit on marriage and the African-American community begins at Hampton University today. Religious leaders, psychologists and other specialists will be talking about the state of marriage, and how to reverse trends like high divorce rates and out-of-wedlock births. The conference marks the launch of the National Center on African-American Marriage and Parenting at Hampton University. The director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, W. Bradford Wilcox, tells the Washington Times, the summit is timely with an ever-widening marriage gap in America that largely runs along racial and socio-economic lines.
