Abstract / Excerpt
Anti-Black racism has been ingrained in some of the foundations of American society. Black-White inequality research from the 1970s attributed the persistent educational and employment opportunity gap to the high concentration of Black people in cities, isolating them from opportunity-rich suburbs. Professor Angela Simms’ research analyzes data from the U.S. local jurisdiction with the largest concentration of middle class African Americans, investigating their ability to provide high-quality public schools in order to look more deeply at issues of accessibility with regard to race.
