Cornell American Capitalism Conference – African Americans & Economic Rights

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to listen to academy experts on African Americans and Economic Rights. I found the panelists’ work to be incredibly dynamic. In particular, Andrew Kahrl provided astonishing details around dispossession through taxation. He explains the transfer of highly desirable island land/property from poorer, uneducated Blacks to affluent Whites in South Carolina. Just thought I’d share an article about Kahrl’s work.
