Why the Invisible Black Man Matters

In Invisible Men: Mass Incarceration and the Myth of Black Progress, University of Washington sociology professor Becky Pettit argued that by not including prison inmates in many of the most important population surveys, a misleading snapshot of America is generated: one that exaggerates the educational, political and economic progress of Black Americans. This collective blindness, she postulates, has effectively concealed decades of racial inequality and led to misguided policy.
