Durham | Gene Nichol “The Faces of Poverty in NC: Our Invisible Citizens

January 17 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Regulator welcomes UNC School of Law professor Gene Nichols, author of “The Faces of Poverty in North Carolina: Stories from Our Invisible Citizens,” for a reading and book signing.

Since 2012, Gene R. Nichol has traveled the length of North Carolina, conducting hundreds of interviews with poor people and those working to alleviate the worst of their circumstances.
While many in the Tar Heel State enjoy unparalleled prosperity, those born into poverty have dramatically lower odds of economic upward mobility. Nichol challenges us to look past partisan divides and preconceived notions, and to seek change. Only with a full commitment as a society, Nichol argues, will we succeed in truly ending poverty, which he calls our greatest challenge.

GENE R. NICHOL is the Boyd Tinsley Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
