In the current social and political climate, it is important that those of us seeking to create positive change in our world have an opportunity to have real and relevant discussions about truth and justice. Join us for an intellectual, though-provoking, honest, and real conversation about Black-White race interactions in the US as we explore the economic exploitation of Black Americans and the financial impact of racism in America. From slavery to the predatory lending practices of the current century we will discuss America's relationship with greed and racism, address how such exploitation is an American (not just Black American) problem, and brainstorm ways to restore justice to the exploited community and mend corrupt systems.
