Highly recommended for anyone, black or white who's ever wondered, "Why aren't black Americans further along economically?" Shapiro looks at the role even modest family wealth contributes to upward mobility in many white families, while a racially tinged real estate market devalues black home ownership, making it harder for black families to accumulate and pass down wealth. Shapiro offers some modest, extremely workable solutions.
