How the Deck Is Stacked: The Recovery's Racial Divide
Description

Find out why, as of 2016, the wealth gap between black and white households in the United States is the largest it has been in three decades, even as the economy is recovering, in this video from FRONTLINE’s “How the Deck Is Stacked,” produced in collaboration with Marketplace and PBS NewsHour. Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal visits the town of Cleveland, Mississippi, to witness the recovery’s racial divide, a disparity that is seen in many cities and towns across the country. In Cleveland, the economic divide between white and black families is particularly acute. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.
