Folks, its all about the Dollar bill here. Everybody likes money or simply need greenbacks and Black Americans aint no different. This selection of songs from the Golden Age; performed by black artists are my personal faves about this subject. African Americans have had limited access to building wealth for generations. A closer look at wealth in America reveals staggering racial wealth disparities. For centuries, the struggle for African Americans to build, secure and maintain wealth has been ongoing in the United States. Many financial barriers began during slavery and continued after emancipation throughout the last 50 years. These barriers reduced Black and African Americans’ opportunities for creating wealth.
