Race and Class Inequality in Local Politics
The American Political Science Association’s Presidential Task Force on Racial and Class Inequalities in the Americas. The main goal of the Task Force was to interrogate the relationship between race and class in producing material, political, and social inequalities in the nations of the Americas. The Task Force also sought to examine how the political systems in these countries work to foment and/or ameliorate inequalities that track with ethnic and racial identities and socioeconomic status. In the podcast, Alvin Tillery, Jr., Northwestern University and Juliet Hooker, University of Texas at Austin sit down with authors Jessica Trounstine, University of California, Merced, and Zoltan Hajnal, University of California, San Diego, to discuss their work for the task force.
