The Stock Market and Closing the Wealth Gap with Dr. Boyce Watkins
Play • 13 min

Today, we talk with host Dr. Boyce Watkins about the stock market.

Investing in the stock market is one of the key strategies to build wealth in America. But so few Black households are participating. While the wealth gap is rooted in economic racism, the less we invest, the more it widens. On this episode, we talk about what it is, easy tips on how to begin investing, and the importance of stocks for the Black community.
