    The U.S. is divided by class and by race. How do race, class, and cultural gaps overlap with and reinforce each other? How do they contribute to inequalities? What lies behind the stubborn poverty of millions of Americans?

    On September 5, the Brookings Institution will host a conversation with William Julius Wilson, America’s leading voice on the sociology of race and poverty and author of “The Truly Disadvantaged,” and J.D. Vance, the author of the acclaimed “Hillbilly Elegy,” a personal and moving account of white underclass struggle in Appalachia. The conversation will be moderated by Camille Busette, director of the Race, Prosperity, and Inclusion Initiative at Brookings

    After the session, panelists will take audience questions. This event will be live webcast. Join the conversation on Twitter using #RaceinAmerica.
