Black wealth—why does it matter?

In a capitalist society it is important to accumulate capital for wealth building, and it’s important to have a plan for using your resources to build wealth. Important resources include capital, education, healthcare, and a strong collaboration network. Black wealth will continue to lag until there is equal access to resources, and that matters for everyone. Boston University is proud to present a discussion on Black wealth with highly accomplished and well-respected finance industry leaders.
