Fenaba R. Addo
Associate Professor, Public Policy, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC)
Addo, who’s also associate professor, Sociology (adjunct), at UNC’s Carolina Population Center, examines debt and wealth inequality with a focus on family and relationships, higher education, union formation, and economic strain. In addition, she examines how racial disparities in student debt, older Black women and wealth, and the Millennial racial wealth gap stem from historical legacies of racial exclusion and discrimination and are reproduced over time. Addo previously was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar, and the Lorna Jorgensen Wendt Associate Professor of Money, Relationships, and Equality (MORE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
