    Race in America

    The poverty rate for black Americans remains three times higher than that for white Americans. The past 50 years have represented an unprecedented expansion of freedoms for all Americans, but it’s obvious we still have a long way to go. A diverse and provocative panel discusses some of the most pressing issues of racial inequality facing America today—and shares the paths they see to a more equal world.
