Dr. Tommy Curry (http://www.twitter.com/DrTJC) rejoins us for a two-part episode to discuss recent findings about Black men in studies that have made the news from both the Equality of Opportunity Project (covered in the NY Times) and the Brookings Institute. We also offer Dr. Curry the opportunity to respond to criticisms about him and his work that we’ve heard over the past year.
Mentioned in the episode:
- The Brookings Institute’s study “The inheritance of black poverty: It’s all about the men” https://www.brookings.edu/research/the-inheritance-of-black-poverty-its-all-about-the-men/
- My tweet and thread showing the various ways Brookings tweeted the study before settling on the inflammatory clickbait tweet that finally got the attention: https://twitter.com/RickyRawls/status/978638533345849345
- Article by Huffington Post summarizing the Princeton study by David Pedulla, “Unmaking Black Gay Privilege”: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-fitzgerald-gates-phd/unmasking-black-gay-privilege_b_6978224.html.
