LUNCH PLENARY: STRATEGIES TO CLOSE THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP
As noted in the recently released report “Still A Dream,” 60 Years after the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom the nation is on a path where it will take over 500 years for Black people to reach income parity with white Americans and nearly 800 years for wealth equality. Dedrick will discuss why this is the case, what it will take to move the country beyond its economic apartheid and the important role homeownership can play in bridging this inequality.
