CASBS Symposium - Evidence of Change; Glenn Loury - Racial Inequality in 21st Century America: Where Do We Go from Here?

Glenn Loury CASBS Fellow 2015-16, Merton Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences and Professor of Economics at Brown University
How does racial inequality manifest itself in today's America? What does this mean for the future of American democracy? There is a huge gap in the wealth, asset holdings, schooling, imprisonment, employment, and mortality of black and white Americans. This cirucumstance poses profound challenges for the future of American democracy.
Taking incarceration as a leading case in point, Prof. Loury explores the nature of racial inequality in today's America, and the threat this poses to the character of American democracy.
