Description

Go behind the story to hear about the data, documents, tips and sources to learn how to find similar stories in your area.

In this session, investigative reporter Paul Singer of WGBH in Boston takes us behind a series called the Color of Public Money, which tracked state spending on contracts with minority-owned businesses.

The project found a stunning lack of opportunity for minority-owned businesses and huge gaps in systems supposedly created to encourage their participation. The data is almost certainly available in every state and the stories are central to the public discussion about systemic racism.
