Season 3, Episode 71 of 86

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines the issue of concentrated poverty, which refers to poor individuals and families living near one another, clustering in certain neighborhoods and regions. This results in higher crime rates, underperforming public schools, poor housing and health conditions, as well as limited access to job opportunities. And the number of people living in high-poverty areas is rising. But strategies to turn these areas around may be on the horizon. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports from Atlanta.
