A panel discussion was held on the growth of the wealth gap between black and white families in the United States. Topics included the effect on the 2012 presidential election of changes in the attitudes of those black families who have achieved the middle class that might lead to less cohesion in black communities. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. Peniel Joseph moderated.
