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.

We take a look at the historical data and also get a first-hand account from an actual Black entrepreneur. Press play to get the scoop.
