Event description

Description

The Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity is partnering with the Roosevelt Institute and the Brookings Institution’s Richard Reeves for a conference on October 26, 2017 entitled The Hidden Rules of Race and Dream Hoarders: A Conference Exploring the Historical and Contemporary Landscape of Race, Wealth, and Health Disparities in the United States.

Reception and Book Reading To Follow

The conference will feature authors of the forthcoming Roosevelt Institute book being published by the Cambridge University Press, The Hidden Rules of Race: Barriers to an Inclusive Economy, and Richard Reeves, author of Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust. The convening will include multiple faculty and student panel discussions centered around racialized health and wealth disparities in a national environment where so much attention is being paid to the “white working class.” The conference will also feature a discussion between Reeves and Gillian White, senior associate editor at The Atlantic, moderated by Nancy MacLean, William H. Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke and author of Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America, which is nominated for the National Book Awards nonfiction prize.

A reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres will be held at the JB Duke Hotel from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm followed by a formal reading and book signing from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library Room 153.

The event is free and open to the public. Please register to attend.
