    The thirty-year-old photographer Joshua Woods grew up in Harlem's Le Petit Sénégal, a small enclave along West 116th Street, where, as a child, he heard fly, gold-chain-rocking, elder male émigrés speak gloriously of easy black living and independence in Senegalese cities like Dakar or Pikine.

    There's a saying: When white America catches a cold, black America catches pneumonia. So, if there is an impending retirement crisis in America, what does that mean for African Americans? The answer to that question is discouraging. There is a huge gap in retirement preparation of African Americans compared to white Americans, generally speaking.

Now, new undergraduate research places this assertion into doubt.
