But a new study out of UNC-Chapel Hill challenges that definition, particularly for the African-American population. Host Frank Stasio gets an update on who is achieving and maintaining middle-class status in the black community from Kris Marsh, of the Carolina Population Center; Walter Farell, a UNC professor of Social Work; and, John Morton, a program director at Pew Charitable Trusts.
