Featuring new findings on the depth and persistence of racial wealth gaps, Fabian Pfeffer (Associate Professor, Sociology; Research Associate Professor, Population Studies Center, ISR) will also clarify why rising levels of wealth inequality present a major challenge to the economic prosperity and opportunity of most families in this country.
