The National Urban League has described this year’s “State of Black America” report as a “tale of two nations.” The group’s annual report, released earlier this month (March), found that under an equality index African Americans had only 72% parity compared to whites in areas such as education, economics, health, social justice and civic engagement. It’s a gap that educators and students at Brooklyn’s Medgar Evers College are looking to close. VOA’s Daniela Schrier reports from the school.
