In November and December 2010, Peter D. Hart Research Associates conducted important new research for the CDF on behalf of the BCCC.
Andy Sum, professor of economics and director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston, conducted a study that found the American dream and employment opportunities vanishing for many Black young people. View the full report and read the summary findings of the report.
The economic crisis of the last three years has pushed Black children and youth deeper and deeper into an abyss of poverty, hunger, homelessness and despair. Black children and youth continue to face multiple risks from birth and throughout life that increase the danger of their becoming part of the Cradle to Prison Pipeline® crisis that leads to dead end lives. To highlight these harsh realities CDF produced the “Portrait of Inequality 2011”, a report showing the gross inequalities facing Black children compared to White children, across all critical indicators of wellbeing.
CDF produced a one-page document comparing Black and White children in the crucial areas of poverty, family structure, health, education and the criminal justice system.
