Robert D. Cherry (born 1944) is a professor emeritus at Brooklyn College, with a Ph.D. in Economics from Kansas State University received in 1968. He formally held the Broeklundian Professorship.[1]

Academic interests[edit]

His main areas of interest include race and gender earnings disparities in America, issues of poverty, low-income housing, tax reform to benefit working families, domestic relations, and immigration. These and other similar subjects are featured in his latest social policy book, published by NYU Press under the title, Moving Working Families Forward: Third Way Policies That Work.[2][3] Cherry conducts studies of black and Latino students who graduate with degrees from less competitive colleges in the private sector.[2]

Cherry has written extensively on the subject of discrimination and race,[4] as well as the Holocaust in Poland. He is a member of 1776 Unites.[5]

Rethinking Poles and Jews[edit]

Cherry is the co-author of Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future published simultaneously in Poland as Polacy i Żydzi – kwestia otwarta, one of the first books to address the negative assumptions and anti-Polish bias in the Holocaust literature.[6][7] The book, produced in collaboration with Annamaria Orla-Bukowska of Jagiellonian University in Kraków, was published in English as well as in Polish. It was described by Michael C. Steinlauf as "a ray of light amidst the acrimonious and generally uninformed polemics"[8] and by Deborah Lipstadt as "a series of essays that pierce the stereotypes which have obscured historical reality".[9]
