Book Discussion: <em>Our Black Year</em> by Maggie Anderson

Saturday, August 26, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Author Maggie Anderson and her family's determination to purchase only from black-owned businesses for a full year revealed hard truths about the depth of the black wealth disparity and economic disenfranchisement. Her book, Our Black Year: One Family's Quest to Buy Black in America's Racially Divided Economy, chronicles the journey, which prompted her to create the Black Empowerment Experiment Foundation in 2012.
