Cook Center Founding Director William A. “Sandy” Darity, Jr., along with writer A. Kirsten Mullen, were recently interviewed by WUNC North Carolina Public Radio to discuss research from their edited volume The Black Reparations Project: A Handbook for Racial Justice.

This research demonstrates a direct connection between slavery and today’s racial wealth gap.

In the audio episode, Sandy and Kirsten talk with Leoneda Inge, co-host of WUNC’s daily radio show “Due South“, about how reparations from the federal government are essential to our country’s reckoning with our past and present.
