Hosted by Diane Wong and Lane Arye

The impact of systemic racism on Black and White family wealth as told through stories of the GI Bill and redlining. 

 

In telling stories of a white family and a black family's post-WWII experience with the GI Bill, FHA loan, and redlining, this event provides historical context and personal stories of quests for homeownership in the US. The stories of the white family and Black family will contrast to demonstrate why median Black family wealth is currently less than 10% of white family wealth. This retreat includes facilitated break-out groups as we develop our collective muscle in processing internalized racism, healing, and creating a vision for our collective future.

Personal family stories provided by Diane Wong and Lane Arye. Historical context provided by Pharaoh Saunders and Jordana Hart.
