UAlbany News Podcast: Opportunity Zones with Timothy Weaver

On the last episode for 2018, we take a closer look at what political scientists call "Opportunity Zones," or economically-distressed communities. Our guest for this episode is Timothy Weaver, an assistant professor of political science at UAlbany's Rockefeller College. His research focuses on urban policy and the role of race, class and culture in American politics.
