Many who have been able to move to a stage of wealth building say it is because of opportunities for a solid education, learning how to invest, and being able to purchase property

A living-wage income is a first and extremely important step to building wealth. But it cannot be the endgame when thinking about building inter-generational wealth. To advance economic equity, we must move beyond focusing on poverty reduction and living-wage job opportunities to focusing on wealth creation. *

Overall, African American households are less likely to own a business than white households, and if they do, the business is, on average, eight times less valuable than a white owned business. One cause of this disparity is lack of access to capital and not having the relevant knowledge or mentor-ship as primary barriers to starting a business. **

 

Competing with white-owned business where access to capital is readily available and often secured by property, leads to a dead end cycle when property ownership is out of reach.
