Why does the median family of color have less than a dime for every white dollar? The Color of Wealth exposes how people of color have been barred from government wealth-building programs benefiting white Americans. This uniquely multicultural economic history covers the asset-building stories of Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, and European Americans.
"Thoroughly researched and written in an accessible style, The Color of Wealth is a comprehensive guide to understanding America’s great wealth divide.”
—Thomas Shapiro, Black Wealth / White Wealth
