January Series: Matthew Desmond – Poverty, By America
January 19, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Matthew Desmond is a sociologist, MacArthur Fellowship recipient, and the founder and principal investigator of the Eviction Lab at Princeton University. In his latest book, Poverty, By America, draws on history, research, and original reporting to show how poverty in the U.S. persists because the rest of us benefit from it.
