Professor Darrick Hamilton and Milano PhD Student Rachel Atkins, along with Kilolo Kijakazi,  Mark Paul, Anne E. Price and William A. Darity Jr, co-authored a report on the Color of Wealth in the Nation’s Capital that explores the historical wealth gap between black and white residents in the region of Washington, D.C. The report is a result of a joint publication of the Urban Institute, The New School, Duke University and The Insight Center for Community Economic Development and it was successfully launched in Washington, DC in an event that was open to the public.

The Washington Post has written an article based on the report that can be found here. Additionally, Professor Darrick appeared on BBC’s Business matters to discuss technology, race, discrimination and transportation. You can watch the video here.
