A Virtual/Hybrid Conference
Southern New Hampshire University | Manchester
Black New England Conference 2022, Where the Money Resides: An Exploration of Racialized Access & Historic Exclusion from Wealth, opens on Friday, October 21 with two panels on the historic barriers African Americans faced as they sought to accumulate wealth.
“The scars of racial segregation can still be seen in many parts of America today.
This is a difficult topic, but one that is necessary for collective healing. I’m really
looking forward to what promises to be a meaningful conversation with Richard Rothstein and Karen Spiller.” – Shelley Walcott
Black New England Conference 2022 examines the legal framework and institutional practices that block access to wealth for non-whites. The conference will explore the history and legacy of policies – public and private – that determined where Black families, Indigenous populations, and People of Color could live, work, and go to school. Evidence shows these policies – not personal attributes – create the wealth gap that persists today.Each panel recommends carefully vetted books and articles on their topic so you can prepare in advance or dig deeper later.
