Racial Justice Doesn’t Trickle Down

Writer Andrea Flynn explores the persistence of hidden, racialized barriers to economic equality in the US, and explains why a ‘class only’ attempt to address inequality for all Americans fails to confront the legacy of systemic racism – via mass incarceration, spatial segregation and the wealth gap – blocking Black Americans from prosperity and equal access to the economy at large.

Andrea is co-author of the book The Hidden Rules of Race: Barriers to an Inclusive Economy
