Paul Gorski to speak at Furman University on poverty (UPDATE)

A Cultural Life Program on poverty will be sponsored by the Furman University chapter of the NAACP this coming WEDNESDAY October 26 in Patrick Lecture Hall/Plyler 126 at 7 pm.

Gorski is one of the first scholars to challenge the workshops and ideology of Ruby Payne. His work confronts assumptions about the culture of poverty and deficit perspectives related to poverty and people living in poverty.
