UW-Madison’s Walter Stern published an op-ed with the New Orleans Advocate newspaper earlier this month, making the case for New Orleans to compensate African-Americans for past discrimination. Stern is a historian of education and an assistant professor with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Policy Studies. He is the author of a 2018 book titled, “Race and Education in New Orleans: Creating the Segregated City, 1764-1960.” Stern remarks that “a key consequence of segregation, like slavery before it, was the redistribution of capital from black to white hands.” He calls for action from the city after 300 years of a persisting wealth gap between black and white New Orleanians.
