Economics Department Annual Wayne K. Van Dyck Lecture - Stratification Economics - Understanding Identity and Inequality - A conversation with Professor William Darity, Jr.

September 21 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Virtual Event

 Today’s Black-White wealth gap originated with  the  unfulfilled  promise of 40 acres in 1865. In From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty-First Century (University of North Carolina Press, 2020), William Darity Jr. and A. Kirsten Mullen argue that the payment of this debt in the 21st century is feasible—and at least 155 years overdue. They advance a general definition of reparations as a program of acknowledgment, redress, and closure; and present a plan of action to achieve redress for black American descendants of slavery in the United States.
