Ain’t No Makin’ It
- Aspirations and Attainment in a Low-Income Neighborhood
- By: Jay MacLeod
- Narrated by: Christian Rummel
- Length: 20 hrs and 58 mins
This classic text addresses one of the most important issues in modern social theory and policy: how social inequality is reproduced from one generation to the next. With the original 1987 publication of Ain’t No Makin’ It Jay MacLeod brought us to the Clarendon Heights housing project where we met the "Brothers" and the "Hallway Hangers". Their story of poverty, race, and defeatism moved listeners and challenged ethnic stereotypes.
