ISR Insights Speaker Series – Wealth and the Persistence of Racial Inequality

June 10, 2020

ANN ARBOR – ISR Insights Speaker Series is a series focusing on the research happening at ISR.

As the country grapples with its persistent problem of racial injustice, this ISR Insights talk focuses on one aspect of long-standing racial inequality — gaps in family wealth. Featuring new findings on the depth and persistence of racial wealth gaps, Fabian Pfeffer (Associate Professor, Sociology; Research Associate Professor, Population Studies Center, Survey Research Center ISR; Director, Center for Inequality Dynamics) also clarifies why rising levels of wealth inequality present a major challenge to the economic prosperity and opportunity of most families in this country.
