Cook Center research featured in Op-Ed on the Racial Wealth Gap

Cook Center research was featured in Op-Ed on the Racial Wealth Gap.

Senior Associate in Research and Communications Strategist Amber Holland takes readers through the work of Cook Center researchers to address questions about the Racial Wealth Gap and debunk common myths in their new study “Setting the Record Straight on Racial Wealth Inequality”.

The key to closing the wealth gap begins with acknowledging its origins – America’s unfair racial history and the unequal passing down of resources between white and Black American families across generations.


This study is authored by Fenaba R. Addo, William A. Darity Jr., and Samuel L. Myers Jr. See our recap of the publication here.
