More than 150 years after the 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States, most US adults say the legacy of slavery continues to have an impact on the position of black people in American society today. More than four-in-ten say the country hasn’t made enough progress toward racial equality, and there is some skepticism, particularly among black people surveyed, that black people will ever have equal rights with whites, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

This nationally representative survey of 6,637 adults was conducted online between 22 January and 5 February, 2019, in English and Spanish, using Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel.
