Robert Cherry on Race, Poverty, and Law in National Affairs Essay

Robert Cherry (GC/Brooklyn, Economics) recently published a National Affairs essay examining some of the specific challenges faced by black men in American society.
“In Ferguson, Missouri, in New York City, and elsewhere, troubling incidents raised questions about race and poverty, crime and punishment, and law and order,” Cherry wrote. “But beneath these more familiar debates are buried questions that are not taken up as often — questions about the state of black men in particular, and what might be done to help them improve their situations.”
The essay appears in the spring issue of the magazine. Cherry is co-author of Moving Working Families Forward: Third Way Policies That Can Work (NYU Press, 2013).
