Achieving Equality in "Post-Racial" America

William Darity, Jr., Duke University

Wednesday, February 20, 2013
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Hawkins Carlson Reading Room, Rush Rhees Library

William Darity, Jr., Arts & Sciences Professor of Public Policy, Professor of African and African-American Studies and Economics and Chair, Department of African and African American Studies, Director, Research Network on Racial and Ethnic Inequality   

Description: In the existing political climate, national policies targeted on behalf of black Americans have little or no purchase. The key act of imagination is the design of national policies that are universal in scope that still will contribute to closure of persistent racial disparities in the United States. The lecture will advance two major proposals that will push America dramatically forward toward increased equality: 1. "baby bonds" and 2. a federal job guarantee for all citizens.

Free and open to the public
