May 24, 2014 Show

May 24, 2014 @ 3:46 pm

We have a theme for this week's show -- a lineup inspired by Ta-Nehisi Coates' eloquent case for reparations for slavery and Jim Crow.

First up, we have Dalton Conley, a sociologist at NYU and author of Being Black, Living in the Red: Race, Wealth and Social Policy in America. Conley has studied how the black-white wealth gap -- the lasting legacy of institutional racism in the past -- limits the opportunities of African-Americans being born today.

Then we'll speak with William Darity, Jr., a professor of African-American studies and economic at Rutgers who has long argued for reparations.

Finally, we'll be joined by Rachel Black, a senior research fellow at the New America Foundations asset-building program to talk about, well, asset-building.

Also, classic Blues!
