ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery

29mins | 2010NR
President Obama says the stimulus saved or created 2 million jobs in 2009. But is the recovery really working? The American dream of good jobs and strong communities is still just a dream for too many. The unfair economy hurts certain groups more, and that ends up hurting everyone. From the bottom line to the unemployment line to the color line, watch a new in-depth program from Link TV and Applied Research Center for a closer look: ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery.

ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery follows communities making ends meet in the Great Recession. The program narrates the moving story of Tisha, mother of three in Connecticut, facing a social safety net shredded further by the crisis. Then the program goes to Los Angeles, where community-based organization SCOPE has mobilized to win green jobs for communities of color.
