Student Loan Debt Visualization

Feb. 28, 2023

Anthropology’s VizE Lab created this visualization based on an original by W.E.B. Dubois. It charts the cancellation of student loan debt that is in debate in the Supreme Court today and shows how cancellation would narrow racial debt inequalities between Blacks and whites. The chart is one of ten Duboisian charts produced in the VizE Lab on the racial disparities in student loan debt that will be exhibited in the library this spring.
