In the Broke-ish space, we talk about being broke—broke and black in America. We talk about all the unbelievable *ish that America has done black people to keep us in this broke-ish state.  We've been bamboozled in ways that personal finance tips and traditional financial

literacy can't fix.  Our co-hosts, Delina and Erika, are 40ish women sharing candidly about money, wealth-building and the financial urban legends that need to die. You'll hear them draw from research, statistics and personal insights to create an engaging podcast whose mission is to be a part of changing the narrative around money. Broke-ish is for those who still persevere, in spite of all the things that America, capitalism, white supremacy, have done to us as black people. We're Broke-ish. Let's talk about it.

This week, Amber and Erika are joined by Dr. Jared Ball of Morgan State University to discuss his new book, “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power”, where he debunks many of the racist misconceptions about Black capitalism and purchasing power. Dr. Ball enlightens the Brokers on the unholy alliance between White capitalists and the Black business elite that fueled the notion that Blacks have one trillion dollars worth of spending power. Discussing both the motives for this falsity and the true state of Black America’s finances, Dr. Ball sets the record straight and provides insight into real ways we can leverage our power to affect change. Tune in to hear what he has to say!!
