Dissecting Inequality with Donna Goodman

The HawkTalk is a TED inspired program. Each semester the TV Studio Production students choose an issue or topic that they are concerned about and then they invite four speaker to come to the studio to share their experience or research on the subject which culminates in a 32 minute program with diverse perspectives.

Inequality in the United States is something that is not often talked about and doesn’t always change in positive ways. In this talk, retired professor and activist Donna Goodman discusses the ways that inequalities in the United States play out in everyday lives. Goodman talks about highways dividing cities, reducing maternal mortality rates, the United States having the highest per-capita prison population in the world and more, along with what we can do to start seeing positive changes.

Produced by Prof. Megan Sperry’s TV Studio Production class in Fall 2019.
