gender development population million approximately

In 1998, there were approximately 8.4 million African-American households in the United States. With a total population of approximately 34.5 million, African Americans made up 13 percent of the population of U.S. families. African-American families are not very different from other U.S. families; they, too, are chiefly responsible for the care and development of children. However, African-American family life has several distinctive features related to the timing and approaches to marriage and family formation, gender roles, parenting styles, and strategies for coping with adversity.

307 Idea Factory in association with JORDAN Productions releases the film, Footsteps

Footsteps-Life lessons our grandparents gave us.
The resilient soul of people, the bonds within a community and the life lessons our grandparents taught us inspired this new film by 307 Idea Factory in Decatur, Georgia. The personal interviews of the Oakhurst District's residents were shot over a three month period while winter left and spring began to color the landscape. Footsteps allows the elderly to speak their minds about how they see the world today. It is a tribute to those who, with gentle hands and strong minds, opened up a new era for America.

Film maker Dany Nieves chose this small neighborhood to delve into social issues. He shows how the words from our elders gave us the strength to live in the world as active members of the community. Footsteps is a look in to what happens when a generation is distant from their elders and lose the words of wisdom passed down through the ages. Footsteps does not examine the disconnect between the generations, it allows those who raised us to give us one last breath of hope.

The film is a high definition fine art look at a city diverse in culture and people. Decatur has always found a way to balance every need while serving the greater good of its residents. Footsteps maps the time lines of Decatur through three histories. The first was written for educational purposes. While the second history serves as research into the rich past of the African-American contributions. The last history of Decatur is told as gospal by a strong mayor who helped change the city's future.  From the sounds of an old Baptist church located in a small house to a local car museum full of memories, this film offers a wide range of flavors that we all need to inhale. It is a film that allows people to release the stress of today and remember what it was like to be nine-years-old again. It is a Sunday, from early song to late evening with your grandmother.

Footsteps promises to be a new type of documentary. It is a new look at how we communicate ideas and bring their pure essence back into our lives. This is not about, "family values" nor is it about, "life is better in a small town". Instead, Footsteps is a film that allows you a moment to breathe and clear your mind. Hear the words which gave us comfort and love while sharing those words with all you love and care for.

what u say about african americans can be n it might apply,but does it apply to other races. yes it u just can't single one nationality out from another then cum up with all these statistics that are probably miss calculated. why is that people always try to put african american down as if there not good enough. maybe if we were blind and didn't know color or race it wouldn't matter. why can't we all just BE AMERICAN. we live here don't we.
