Black-white IQ gap: Flynn and Murray present

I just learned of a special conference presentation (next week in DC) sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) that will feature James "Flynn Effect" Flynn and Charles "Bell Curve" Murray presenting and discussing new research on the "Black-White IQ Gap: Is it Closing? Will it Ever Go Away?" Follow the links for additional information. The program abstract is presented below:
  • For decades, the difference in the test scores of blacks and whites on the SAT, National Assessment of Educational Progress test, Armed Forces Qualification Test, and traditional IQ tests has been a vexed issue for American educational policy. Two of the leading scholars of this controversial topic, James R. Flynn of the University of Otago (New Zealand) and Charles Murray of AEI, will debate the causes of the difference, its implications, and recent trends. New studies of the subject by Professor Flynn and by Mr. Murray will be available for distribution at the session.
