In Episode 89 of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with William B. Allen, editor of “The State of Black America: Progress, Pitfalls, and the Promise of the Republic.”

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by William B. Allen, resident scholar and the former chief operating officer of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) and emeritus dean of James Madison College at Michigan State University, to discuss CURE’s new book, “The State of Black America: Progress, Pitfalls, and the Promise of the Republic.” They discuss the character, shape, and tendencies of life for black Americans, their astounding success in integrating into mainstream American culture, and why black patriotism is the key to overcoming what problems remain.
