Race and Wealth Disparity in 21st-Century America
The Warren Center and the Vanderbilt Law School are cosponsoring a
research circle entitled Race and Wealth Disparity in 21st-Century
America. The project is funded by the Ford Foundation and directed
by Beverly Moran, professor of law and sociology at Vanderbilt University.
Members of the research circle are working to bridge the gap between
their separate disciplines by sharing each fields unique insights
and methods with one another and with the general public, through a
series of private workshops and public lectures, as well as the development
of teaching materials for use in the classroom. Participants in the
program include faculty members from five colleges within Vanderbilt
University (College of Arts and Science, Law School, School of Medicine,
Owen School of Management, and Peabody College), Fisk University, Meharry
Medical Center, and Tennessee State University. Also participating in
the program is the executive director of the Tennessee Network for Community
Economic Development, a not-for-profit organization committed to increasing
asset acquisition among the working poor. The lecture series, which
began in the fall of 2002, will continue during the 2003/2004 year.
Lecture dates and topics will soon be announced.
