A Conference Exploring the Historical and Contemporary Landscape of Race, Wealth, and Health Disparities in the United States.

On Thursday, October 26, 2017 the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University partnered with the Roosevelt Institute and the Brookings Institution’s Richard Reeves for a conference that explored the underpinnings of health and wealth disparities in the context of race, moving beyond the current narrative around the white working class. Conference attendees had the opportunity to meet the authors of two recently-published books which squarely address the current political environment: "Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else" in the Dust by Richard Reeves (Brookings Institution) and "The Hidden Rules of Race: Barriers to an Inclusive Economy" by Felicia Wong, Andrea Flynn, Dorian Warren and Sue Holmberg (Roosevelt Institute).
The event featured Professor William “Sandy” Darity Jr., Duke University Professor and Founding Director of the Samuel DuBois Cook Center. The convening included four panels which focused on a host of issues from health disparities to economic injustice plus a student discussion of "Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust."

Reeves and Gillian White, senior associate editor at "The Atlantic," engaged in a discussion of "Dream Hoarders" moderated by Nancy MacLean, William H. Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke and author of "Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America," which is nominated for the National Book Awards nonfiction prize.
