For every dollar of wealth owned by the average US white household, the average Black household has ten cents. From WUNC: The Arc of Justice, a four episode series grounded in the scholarship of prominent African American economist William Darity Jr., explores how that racial wealth gap came to be.
Throughout the nation’s history, time and again, promising signs of African American progress have been shattered by acts of violence serving the interests of white supremacy.
The third episode of this series, “White Brutality,” will air on July 15th at 10 AM and 8 PM on KCPW 88.3 FM.
