Roughly Speaking podcast: Launching a life out of poverty in Baltimore (episode 107)

In this podcast:

A follow-up to Dan's Sunday column with Stefanie DeLuca, a Johns Hopkins sociologist and co-author of a 10-year study of 150 young, African-American men and women who were born in the late 1980s and 1990s to parents who lived in Baltimore's public housing projects. The researchers conducted extensive interviews with the children to measure their success in coming of age as young adults despite the hardships of family poverty, poorly performing schools and violent neighborhoods. The results were surprising. DeLuca, along with  Susan Clampet-Lundquist and Kathryn Edin, are the authors of "Coming of Age in the Other America."
