Cook Center Founding Director Dr. William “Sandy” Darity has been honored as a Black Accounting Trailblazer by CPAacademy.org.

Commenting on their Black History Month series, they shared the following: CPAacademy.org is committed to honoring the rich history of the first black accounting trailblazers, who took the initial steps to break into this once “exclusive” profession and make their mark on the accounting world. Each Wednesday during the month of February, we’ll publish a new article highlighting these trailblazers.

Dr. Darity’s research focuses on inequality by race, class and ethnicity, stratification economics, schooling and the racial achievement gap, North-South theories of trade and development, skin shade and labor market outcomes, the economics of reparations, the Atlantic slave trade and the Industrial Revolution, the history of economics, and the social psychological effects of exposure to unemployment.
