The Racial Wealth Gap? It All Comes Down to Black Banks | Amanpour and Company
Data show that the median white family has 10 times more wealth than the average Black family, a fact grimly familiar to law professor Mehrsa Baradaran. In her award-winning book, “The Color of Money: Black Banks and the Racial Wealth Gap,” she examines how Black communities have been systemically shut out of the banking system – a big brick in the wall of structural racism. Michel Martin speaks with Baradaran about these issues even before the current crises sweeping America. This conversation shows just how prescient her warnings are. Originally aired on July 15, 2020.
