Anthony Abraham Jack is a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He holds the Shutzer Assistant Professorship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. His research documents overlooked diversity among lower-income undergraduates: the doubly disadvantaged – those who enter college from local, typically distressed public high schools – and the privileged poor – those who do so from boarding, day, and preparatory high schools. His scholarship has appeared in the Du Bois Review, Sociological Forum, and Sociology of Education, and has earned awards from the American Sociological Association, Eastern Sociological Society, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
