A closer look at racial trust in Charlotte

http://66.225.205.104/SG20090612a.mp3

Charlotte has become larger and much more diverse in the last 8 years. But a new study from UNC Charlotte's Urban Institue shows in those years, we've made no progress in coming to trust people of other races. Less than a quarter of people in the survey scored well on a fundamental measure of interracial trust. We take a closer look at those findings now from the perspective of Charlotte's Hispanic and African American communities. First, Ruben Campillo, advocacy coordinator for the Latin American Coalition in Charlotte. Then, a conversation with author and community leader Ahmad Daniels, co-founder of Creative Interchange.
