PAST EVENT Friday February 8 2019

How do we explain today’s disparities in progress for Black America? On February 8, senior fellow Jason Riley joined Brown University’s Glenn Loury to discuss Dr. Loury’s reflections on the persistence of racial inequality (the subject of a forthcoming Manhattan Institute paper), followed by a panel conversation.

Despite the tremendous progress made by many African-Americans over the past half-century, the black community continues to experience disproportionate hardship on measures such as poverty, college completion, crime, and out-of-wedlock births. How do we explain today’s disparities in progress for Black America? Are they the products of structural injustices, cultural forces, some synthesis of the two, or other as-yet-unidentified factors?
