About the Event
First published in 1995, Black Wealth/White Wealth changed the national conversation about the long-term financial impact of systemic racism in America. During this talk, President Oliver and Professor Shapiro will discuss how to better understand and better address the racial wealth gap in the US, where Black families have about 10 cents for every dollar that white families have.
