Columbia Journalism School and the Ira A. Lipman Center for Journalism and Civil and Human Rights have released a groundbreaking study on racial inequities in America, featuring five reports examining housing, education, health, policing, and economics.
Led by Dr. Jelani Cobb, the project, called Uncovering Inequality, was inspired by the events following George Floyd’s murder in 2020 and the societal crises disproportionately affecting marginalized communities.
The study aims to provide journalists with a comprehensive, accessible resource for reporting on systemic racial inequities. By condensing decades of research into five compact reports, Uncovering Inequality equips journalists with in-depth source material, revolutionizing the conversation on racial injustice and its deep roots in our society.
The project highlights the importance of addressing racial inequity across various domains to create a more just and equitable future.
