America’s tomorrow: race, place, and the equity agenda


  • Angela Glover Blackwell


Blackwell starts by saying that, given both the wide and increasing disparity in economic and social opportunity and results between whites and African Americans and Latinos, and the increasing share of the population represented by people of color, equity has become “more than a moral issue. It is an economic imperative.” She argues that equity-driven policy change is essential to transform poverty-driven communities into high-opportunity communities. This requires broad based alliances across fields and an inclusive agenda that focuses on those left behind, rebuilds public infrastructure, grows new businesses and jobs and prepares workers for the jobs of tomorrow.
