Virtual Media Availability: The Case for Reparations

Speaker

Professor William "Sandy" Darity

It's commonly claimed the U.S. is a post-racial society, but for every dollar held by the average U.S. white household, the average Black household owns just ten cents. A Duke expert in social equity will discuss how the history of racial inequality in this country has resulted in a need for reparations during a video conference call for the media also available for general viewing via YouTube. Faculty Participant William "Sandy" Darity is a professor of public policy, African and African American Studies and economics who specializes in wealth and income disparities, the social-psychological effects of exposure to unemployment and reparations. Darity also directs the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity.
