Tour of Poverty

The United States is one of the richest countries in the world. It also has higher rates of poverty than any other advanced western nation. Some area organizations are taking a tour of the poorest areas in North Carolina to draw attention to the problem. It’s called the Truth and Hope Tour of Poverty in North Carolina. Host Frank Stasio will talk about poverty in North Carolina with Reverend William Barber, president of the North Carolina NAACP; and Gene Nichol, director of the North Carolina Center on Poverty, Work & Opportunity.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
