SLSA Board Member Keri Leigh Merritt recently discussed with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution how her family history informs her scholarly work, and the many intersections of poverty, racism, and policy in the South. "Poverty informs everything that’s currently happening politically," Merritt notes, "and studying poverty gives us clear answers about how to move forward and make America a more equitable society, particularly in the South." The full interview is available on ACJ.com.
