Overview

The Black Poverty Cycle and How to End It is about how three different facts of life for African-Americans are intertwined and mutually reinforcing: lack of educational opportunities, poverty, and mass incarceration. All three are rooted in the historic racial prejudices of White America. Together they immobilize the great majority of African-Americans at the bottom of the income and wealth scales: below, rather than within, the increasingly stratified class system in which other Americans live. Finally, The Black Poverty Cycle and How to End It is about how to use the very connections among these facts of life to change them and thus improve the lives of African-Americans and with them the lives of all Americans.
