Reclaiming Our Financial Power

Maurice BP-Weeks calls out the racism underlying America's dual financial system.

Episode 5: Reclaiming Our Financial Power

In this episode, we’re examining credit and the oppressive narratives that limit our economic power. America loves to promote ideals like self-determination and choice, yet people of color literally and figuratively can't afford to risk much. And to participate in the economy in ways that will give us a chance to build generational wealth, many of us have to rely on an inherently racist credit system that sees — and treats — us as risky. The money myths that shape who deserves to be made whole help cement a dual financial system that prices us out of prosperity. ACRE’s Maurice BP-Weeks is here to say what needs to be said.
