Melvin L. Oliver and Thomas M. Shapiro in Conversation: The Racial Wealth Gap and Social Progress in Wealth Equality

March 30, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Black Wealth/ White Wealth

Join us for this conversation with Pitzer College President Melvin L. Oliver and Brandeis University Professor Thomas M. Shapiro, co-authors of Black Wealth/White Wealth, the award-winning reading selection of Pitzer College’s Alumni & Family Book Club. First published in 1995, Black Wealth/White Wealth changed the national conversation about the long-term financial impact of systemic racism in America. During this talk, President Oliver and Professor Shapiro will discuss how to better understand and better address the racial wealth gap in the US, where a typical white family has nearly 10 times more wealth than a typical Black family.
