Gene Nichol, Boyd Tinsley Distinguished Professor of Law, and Director of the Center on Poverty, Work & Opportunity, School of Law

Professor Nichol, one of Carolina’s most persuasive voices for social justice, reviews what he believes to be our state’s largest problem—the moral challenge presented by the scourge of poverty amidst plenty. He has spent this past year traveling across North Carolina with journalists, funders, students, professors, activists, and ministers in an effort to move behind the “bloodless statistics” and put a face on poverty.
