Building and Protecting Black Wealth




8 Weeks


About the Course

Building and Protecting Black Wealth: Take control of your financial future and close the racial wealth gap with this comprehensive course designed specifically for Black Americans. Over the course of 8 weeks, we'll dive into essential personal finance concepts, investing strategies, retirement planning, tax planning, risk management, and estate planning.

But we'll go beyond just the basic financial tools. We'll also delve into the historical and systematic structures that have kept Black Americans from accumulating wealth, including redlining, discrimination in housing and employment, and exclusion from certain financial products and services.

We'll explore strategies for overcoming these barriers and building generational wealth, including homeownership and real estate investing, and legacy building. We'll also discuss the importance of community wealth building and how to support and uplift one another in the pursuit of financial security and success.

By the end of the course, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of the tools and strategies needed to build and protect wealth, and the knowledge and skills to create a transformative shift in your financial future.

Join us today and be a part of the movement to close the racial wealth gap and build Black wealth for generations to come.
