In 2016, a white family’s net worth was ten times the amount of a Black family’s. When we discuss the concept of freedom in the Black community, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include financial literacy.
On Juneteenth, The “Keys to Black Wealth Summit” debuted to provide attendees with helpful tips on securing financial freedom while creating generational wealth and closing the racial wealth gap. To do so, the summit featured speakers such as Romeo Miller, Master P and LisaRaye McCoy among others. The Black millennials who co-founded the virtual summit, David DeBerry II, Brandy N. Avery, Lemar Pughsley and Frank Cage sat down with Blavity to discuss the conference.
