Join us as we celebrate the publication of Predatory Lending and the Destruction of the African-American Dream (Cambridge University Press) by law professors Janis Sarra and Cheryl L. Wade.
The book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how systemic anti-black racism has caused and continues to cause the racial wealth gap between black and white Americans. It provides cogent insight in the aftermath of the ongoing global protests against institutional racism and is a crucial contribution to the discourse about why black (economic) lives matter.
With a distinguished panel, the authors will lead a conversation about twenty-first century economic exploitation through predatory lending practices that intentionally target African Americans.
This event qualifies for 1 CPD credit.
