Professor Melvin Oliver is a Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara. His book “Black Wealth, White Wealth- a New Perspective on Racial Inequality” introduced groundbreaking research that showed how big a wealth gap there really is between African Americans and White Americans – how that gap came about, and how it can be bridged.

Here's an audio interview with him- he talks about some scaaaary realities in Black America, and I couldnt help but draw a parallel with Sudanese society- except in our case it would be Southern wealth- Northern wealth.
