Follow up on the families that Frontline has been following for 20 years - Thursday at 7 pm

Jun 27, 2013

Since 1992, Bill Moyers and FRONTLINE have been following the story of two ordinary, hard-working families in Milwaukee – one black, one white – as they spent two decades in an extraordinary battle to keep from sliding into poverty. With poignant and revealing intimacy, “Two American Families” chronicles the struggles of the Neumanns and the Stanleys as they try to hold onto their homes, their jobs, their health insurance, and a future for their children. A remarkable portrait of perseverance, the 90-minute film raises unsettling questions about the changing nature of the U.S. economy and the fate of a declining middle class.

Frontline presents "Two American Families" on Thursday, July 11th at 7:00 p.m.

FRONTLINE follows Claude and Jackie Stanley (top) and Terry and Tony Neumann (bottom) for more than 20 years as they battle to stay out of poverty and provide a future for their children.
