Public Newsroom 78: How Do We Define Black Wealth in Chicago?

6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

For the past couple months, several City Bureau Summer 2018 fellows have been looking at Black generational wealth in Chicago and the discriminatory policies (past and present) that stifle its growth. They have sought to answer the question: What is Black wealth? Through their reporting they’ve explored the cultural wealth of Chicago’s rich Black arts scene, the financial models created by Chicago’s Black businesses and more. This week at the Public Newsroom reporters Erisa Apantaku, Arabella Breck, Olivia Cunningham and Tonia Hill will continue the conversation with panelists who can speak on the different interpretations of Black generational wealth from both a historic lens and into Chicago’s future.
