Baltimore Racial Justice Action and Associated Black Charities Present: African Americans and Mental Health: Harnessing Our Energies & Healing Our Spirit
In his just-released book, Stuck in Place: Urban Neighborhoods and the End of Progress toward Racial Equality, Patrick Sharkey explores and explains why mobility is most often an American myth for those who grow up in concentrated poverty, and how place based disadvantage can be passed on from one generation to the next. Starkey offers new data: fully 70 percent of those families living in concentrated poverty neighborhoods in 1972 are still living in similar neighborhoods some 40 years later. “Location, location, location” has implications beyond real estate; for example, location influences test scores and health outcomes. Starkey offers transformative policies that move towards a durable urban agenda.
