This describes the problem of structural racism in the U.S. and highlights its implications for community building. It is a product of the Roundtable's focus on how the problems associated with race and racism in America affect initiatives aimed at poverty reduction in distressed urban neighborhoods. Its premise is that we must adopt a more race-conscious approach to community building and social justice to achieve racial equity.
