Building Bridges Between Communities
For the last five years, Regionally Speaking has told many stories of the underserved. The job of this week's guest is to tell these stories and explain how they fit into the context of the economy and history. Tim Black is a recent addition to the faculty at Case Western Reserve University. He is a professor of sociology and focuses his research on social inquality. Dr. Black's book When a Heart Turns Rock Solid: The Lives of Three Puerto Rican Brothers On and Off the Streets chronicles his friendship with three young Puerto Rican brothers and details how poverty has shaped their lives. Dr. Black discusses his past work, which is listed as the best books of 2009 by The Washington Post, and describes his future plans with CWRU's Social Justice Institute.
