Episode Info: Did you know that after ~400 years of being in the US, African Americans in the United States only own two percent of U.S. wealth? This week on the Journey to Launch podcast, my guest, Shawn D. Rochester talks about how this dismal stat came to be with data-based research and discusses what we can do about it using concrete solutions. Shawn is the CEO of Good Steward, LLC and author of The Black Tax: The Cost of Being Black in America.  In his book and presentations at Google, and several universities across the United States, Shawn examines the true cost of being Black in America. He outlines what factors impact the Black community and explains how you can help close the wealth gap.  Everyone must listen to this episode.
