Reflecting upon his own unique upbringing, as well as public policies, Zane Krile explores the problem of poverty in America. He describes external factors, such as government-enforced segregation policies and lack of access to jobs that pay decent wages, as well as internal factors (substance abuse, irresponsible decisions, insufficient interest in education) that contribute to the struggles that tens of millions of Americans face.
