b&b 138 Dedrick Asante-Muhammad on how to take action against the racial wealth divide

If average Black family wealth continues to grow at the same pace it has over the past three decades, it would take Black families 228 years to amass the same amount of wealth White families have today. For the average Latino family, it would take 84 years to amass the same amount of wealth White families have today—that’s the year 2097.

We sat down with Dedrick Asante-Muhammad the Director of the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative at CFED (Corporation for Enterprise Development) to discuss the facts surrounding the ever growing wealth gap. What are some effective ways we can get involved?
