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.

On this week’s episode, Amber and Erika are joined by Dr. Jeanelle Hope, an Assistant Professor of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies at Texas Christian University, to discuss the historical and current disparities in the American educational system. From slavery to Brown v. Board of Education and beyond, Dr. Hope discusses both the historical underfunding of Black schools and the inequitable treatment our students have suffered and the long term economic impacts of those disparities on our communities. Tune in to hear our discussion!
