Rich and Poor in North Carolina
Airs Thursday, March 30 at 7 p.m.
Most of the wealth in this country is concentrated in the hands of a few. That holds true in North Carolina, between individuals and communities. What are the real effects of this wealth disparity?
The new WRAL Documentary “State of Inequality” examines the wealth divide between people and places in North Carolina. The documentary, hosted by WRAL News anchor David Crabtree, airs Thursday, March 30 at 7 p.m.
In “State of Inequality,” we meet a “one-percenter” who made her way out of childhood poverty, and a mother at the other end of the spectrum, struggling below the poverty line. Why did their stories turn out so differently? “State of Inequality” looks at their common bonds, different paths, and their shared view on the issue of income inequality.
That same wealth disparity exists between entire counties and communities in North Carolina. The documentary profiles Wake and Bertie counties, on opposite ends of the prosperity scale, exploring the effects of the disparity and possible solutions to lessen its impact.
