This month the NYTimes Upshot published an article and data visualization piece reporting on a longitudinal study of the economic outcomes for Black men. The data was striking and clear, but there is so much to think about when we are touching on numbers to characterize the experience of Black men, Black women, Black people and all people that I felt it was appropriate to pull this into the show this month. Two previous guests of the show Sam Ashby and Jamaal Green joined me to discuss and reflect. I hope you find our discussion informative and that it adds to your understanding of the many issues this piece pulls into the current conversation about our society. Please read the piece, play with the data tools, and check out the full academic piece from the Equality Opportunity Project.
