Economy & Economic Justice / Racial Justice & Human Dignity

As the middle class disappears and the safety net is shredded, Smiley and West, building on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., ask us to confront our fear and complacency with 12 poverty changing ideas. They challenge us to re-examine our assumptions about poverty in America what it really is and how to eliminate it now.
