America’s Tomorrow: An Interview with Angela Glover Blackwell and Manuel Pastor
Last month, PolicyLink launched “America’s Tomorrow: Equity in a Changing Nation,” a new multimedia series looking at the changing face of America, and the leaders who are making a difference.
We kicked the series off with “The Map of America’s Tomorrow,” an interactive time-lapse map showing, for the first time, the growth of people of color from 1990 through 2042. The map struck an instant chord, receiving over 200,000 views across 135 countries in less than 48 hours.
Today we’ve released the first video installment of “America’s Tomorrow” featuring an interview with PolicyLink Founder & CEO Angela Glover Blackwell and Manuel Pastor to talk about the challenges and opportunities facing our nation now, and leading up to 2050 when people of color will be America’s majority.
Pastor – who leads the University of Southern California’s Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE), and is co-author with Blackwell and Stewart Kwoh of Uncommon Common Ground: Race and America’s Future, spoke about the breadth of the coming demographic changes and what it means for equity.
