Unmasking Inequalities: The Race & Social Justice Initiative and the Making of the Charleston County Racial Disparities Report
Do not miss this intriguing conversation on the state of racial disparities in Charleston County. In November 2017, the College of Charleston’s Race and Social Justice Initiative unveiled a comprehensive report entitled The State of Racial Disparities in Charleston County, South Carolina 2000-2015. The report highlights the social imbalances in the lives of Charleston County’s black and white residents.
The Google-funded report highlights systematic barriers marginalizing African Americans in the areas of education, employment, business enterprises, housing and gentrification, policing and public health.
In this thought-provoking presentation, Dr. Patricia Williams Lessane and Mr. Daron Lee Calhoun II will discuss the process of developing this report, outcomes following its release, and how The State of Racial Disparities can be used as a model for similar reports in other communities in order to spark real change.
