CHASING THE DREAM - Poverty In America

"The story of American Poverty, as told by one Alabama county" PBS NewsHour 7/7/2018


SUMMARY:  More than 18 million Americans live in “extreme poverty,” according to a Report from the United Nations, which ranked poverty in the U.S. alongside some of the poorest areas in the world.  The UN Special Rapporteur for Extreme Poverty paid a visit to the U.S. last year, drawing worldwide attention to his findings.  NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Simon Ostrovsky followed in his footsteps to report from Lowndes County, Alabama.  This is part of an ongoing series of reports called “Chasing the Dream,” which reports on poverty and opportunity in America, and is supported in part by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
