Federal Policies that Contributed to Segregation - And the Disparities between White and Black Wealth

Watch this eight and a half minute video,  Segregation Myth: Richard Rothstein Debunks An American Lie


The part about Black wealth today being 10% of white wealth, as a direct result of this federal housing subsidy helping white families where it held back Black families, was really eye-opening for me.

Important to know, and to think about.

P.S. - my thanks to Dr. James Pogue for sharing this as part of his No Nonsense Experience, a four-part DEI training I'm taking as part of my job at the Independent Book Publishers Association.
