In the United States, there are substantial racial disparities in wealth, with the typical White family holding many times the wealth of the typical Black or Hispanic family. In this recording of a July 28, 2021, webinar, we hear from Dr. Fenaba Addo about the precarity of the Black middle class, Dr. Jacob Faber about a discriminatory federal policy housing policy that has shaped today’s racial geography, and Dr. William Darity, Jr., about the how and why of a federal reparations policy.
