Black America in Crisis

The State of Black America’s Equality Index shows that Black Americans have 28% less opportunity than White Americans. But what does that number mean for the real lives of underserved Americans – and how can we improve it?

Black Americans are behind White Americans by nearly 50% in terms of economic opportunity. To combat this inequality, the National Urban League offers job-training programs that serve men like Antonio, who rose above his brushes with the juvenile justice system to get his first salaried job. He now mentors other young men looking to turn their lives around.

Black Americans are also behind by more than 20% in access to quality education. We offer after-school programs and mentors who prepare young people for college. Students like Mariah are able to receive scholarships to college with the help of an Urban League mentor.
