POVERTY IN AMERICA (6 Programs)
Combining scholarly analysis with a human-centered approach, this six-part series looks at the causes and effects of economic hardship in the United States while suggesting ways for society to combat the cycle of poverty. Situational, multigenerational, elder, and child poverty are all addressed through conversations with those who know economic hardship firsthand, while immigration issues and homelessness are also examined in depth. Expert commentary comes from respected writers, socioeconomic scholars, and frontline activists, including Washington Post columnist David Broder, Alan Berube of the Brookings Institute, and Jessica Bartholow, a community food bank administrator.
There are six 32 to 85 minute programs in the series:
