The panelists will discuss the sources and consequences of racial discrimination and resulting social injustice in America. The conversation will focus on how unequal opportunity in education and labor markets has originated and persisted over time. Moreover the lack of level playing field in the economic realm has permeated the workings of the executive, legislative and judicial branches to perpetuate political power concentration also along racial lines. The panelists will explore what factors can break the cycle of economic and political inequality including dealing with the historical origins of civil injustice, uneven schooling opportunities, labor market discrimination, and the future of work and education.
This webinar will be moderated by Maurice Kugler, Professor of Public Policy, Schar School of Policy and Government, GMU, and CSSR Research Associate.

Youngberg Distinguished Professor of Economics, OSU; Lisa Cook, Professor of Economics, MSU; Suresh Naidu, Professor of Economics, Columbia University; and William Spriggs, Professor of Economics, Howard University.
