Homeownership and Liberation from Economic Jails with Dr. Boyce Watkins
Today, we talk with host Dr. Boyce Watkins about homeownership.Owning property is a fast track to wealth; however, access to homeownership has always eluded Black America. That’s by design. Housing discrimination continues to rob our people of trillions in home equity, but there are actions we can take right now to own property and build Black wealth. On this episode, we talk about renting vs. owning, the necessary steps to become a homeowner, and breaking free of the “economic jail.”Building Black Dollars is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company - hit us up at BuildingBlackDollars.com and share this with your people!
