The New York Times ran an extensive profile of Fryer, entitled "Toward a Unified Theory of Black America," in March of 2005.

Despite his birth into a life of poverty Mr. Fryer received an athletic scholarship to the University of Texas at Arlington and graduated in a mere 2.5 years. He then pursued his Ph.D. in economics from Penn State. In recent years, Fryer has noted that his rise to success happened “through the medium of education and through the idea of the mind.” Upon completing a three year fellowship with the Harvard Society of Fellows at the end of the 2005-2006 academic year, Fryer joined Harvard's Economics Department as an assistant professor. In 2005, Fryer was also selected as one of the first Fletcher Foundation Fellows. Recently, Roland Fryer has begun work on the Opportunity NYC Project, which will study how students in low-performing schools respond to financial incentives.
