How do we span the racial wealth gap? | William A. Darity Jr. | TEDxDurham
"Imagine a world where every young person can succeed no matter what their parent's financial situation is." In this talk, William Darity proposes a bold solution he has created to span the racial wealth gap. William A. (“Sandy”) Darity Jr. is the Samuel DuBois Cook Professor of Public Policy, African and African American Studies, and Economics and the director of the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University. He has served as chair of the Department of African and African American Studies and was the founding director of the Research Network on Racial and Ethnic Inequality at Duke. Previously he served as director of the Institute of African American Research, director of the Moore Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program, director of the Undergraduate Honors Program in economics, and director of Graduate Studies at the University of North Carolina. Darity’s research focuses on inequality by race, class and ethnicity, stratification economics, schooling and the racial achievement gap, North-South theories of trade and development, skin shade and labor market outcomes, the economics of reparations, the Atlantic slave trade and the Industrial Revolution, the history of economics, and the social psychological effects of exposure to unemployment. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
Callie House: My Face is Black is True
Mary Francis Berry reclaims Callie House, a magnificent heroine who, though so long forgotten that the site of her grave is unknown, emerges as a pioneering activist: a female forerunner of both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Born in to slavery in 1861, Callie House started the Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association, which sought African American pensions based on those offered Union soldiers, a movement so powerful it frightened the US government, upset Jim Crow legislatures across the South, and gave hope to hundreds of thousands of destitute former slaves. Co-sponsored by the Museum of Afro American History and the Center for New Words.

Genealogist Who Tracks Down Modern-Day Slavery Practices
Slavery might have ended on paper after the Civil War, but many white landowners did everything they could to exploit newly freed slaves well into the 20th century. Thousands of black laborers across the South were forced to work against their will as late as the 1960s—a new form of enslavement that went on in the shadows of rural America. VICE's Akil Gibbons traveled to Louisiana to meet genealogist Antoinette Harrell, the “slavery detective of the South," who tracks down cases of modern-day slavery and abusive labor practices. They talk to a man whose family was held on a plantation against their will into the 1950s, and Antoinette explains how she uses decades-old records to uncover how slavery was perpetuated long after the Civil War ended.

Black Wealth & White Wealth Explained in Less than 2 minutes (Animated Video)
In this 2 minute animated video Attorney Antonio Moore details the difference between Black Wealth and White wealth in the United States of America. Moore uses several key pieces of data to show the entire way we have come to think about race, wealth, and equal access is wrong. A few pieces of the data shown: 1) The top few hundred white families are worth more than all of black America combined 2) There are over 8.5 million White households worth more than a million dollars, and only a few hundred thousand black households that cross the same threshold. Also the number of black families with a million dollars or more is shrinking. 3) The top 50% of White families control 88% of all the personal wealth in America Watch the video to get the full context. Simply put it is a simple black and white lesson on the truth of America’s wealth. Subscribe at Tonetalks on Youtube. ---------- Read Moore’s piece “America’s Financial Divide” on Huffpost Excerpt: Demos.org summed it up in the piece “The Top 10 percent of White Families Own Almost Everything” stating “White families hold 90 percent of the national wealth. Hispanic families hold 2.3 percent of the national wealth. Black families hold 2.6 percent of the national wealth.” So despite a display of what I have termed the “Decadent Veil”, where a small group of wealthy black entertainers are shown repetitively in media. We can see the assertion in clear application when looking at Black America with a closer lens. According to the Slate.com article “The Wealth Gap Between Blacks and Whites is Even More Enormous Than You Think”, the median white family has a net worth of $116,000 dollars. This indicates 41 million white households across the nation have over $116,000 dollars in net worth. In comparison, nearly 40 percent or 5.6 million African American homes in the U.S. have zero or negative net worth. In addition, when you deduct the family car as an asset, the median black family in America only has a net worth of $1,700 dollars. This tells a story of access and opportunity and the lasting effect of a history ripe with dissemination of advantage based on color. If nearly all of the American wealth is in white households, how do we ever expect to achieve access for all? ------------- Background Music in Animated video Courtesy of http://www.purple-planet.com/
