About the Event
Why are neighborhoods segregated?
Safe housing is a cornerstone to healthy living and home ownership has been a cornerstone for wealth building in America. In this discussion, we will explore how systemic policies rooted in racist agendas have limited Black and African American access to safe and affordable housing as well as home ownership.
Moderator - Adrienne Cole Johnson, MSW, Social Entrepreneur, Educational Leader, Businesswoman and Community Advocate
