Roland Fryer

Economist Roland Fryer was working with Harvard University to illuminate the causes and consequences of economic disparity due to race and inequality in American society when he joined the 2011 fellowship class. His in-depth research featured well over 20,000 students from more than 200 schools in three cities.
