Beyond Poverty: Race and Concentrated-Poverty Neighborhoods in Metro Boston

  • Author(s): McArdle, Nancy
  • et al.

The region is in the midst of a period of rapid racial change but there is a widespread perception that either nothing needs to be done explicitly about race, or nothing can be done because of failures in the city of Boston in the past. Many people think that issues of discrimination have been solved and that everyone now has an equal chance.
