17S QSS Course Offering: By the Numbers: Race, Incarceration and Politics, QSS 30.06

01/11/2017

More than half a century after the height of the Civil Rights Movement, inequalities between black Americans and white Americans persist.  Across a myriad of measures---including health, employment, income, wealth, education, and incarceration---black Americans are fundamentally different than whites. Leveraging contemporary data and modern quantitative techniques, we evaluate black-white racial gaps by the numbers and among other things consider how racial inequalities in the United States might alter the American political landscape. 

Offered in Spring 2017 at the 10A hour with Professor David Cottrell. (course syllabus)
