If it seems impossible to talk about poverty in the U.S. without talking about race and culture, that's thanks in large part to one man: Daniel Patrick Moynihan. In 1965, Moynihan wrote a government memo that changed the way we think about poverty. In this episode, writers Peter Aigner and Stephanie Coontz weigh in on the report's legacy, and Moynihan's intentions.
