We are living in times of great economic trouble. Some of the issues that we are facing  in the nation today haven’t been seen since the great depression. Specifically the African-American community has been one of the communities hit the hardest. Is there a historical connection between the African-American experience and how we handle money today. How can we turn our mentalities around and what is the role of the African American male in the economic crises. Join me and my special guest Tawan Davis as we discuss “Financial Trends in The Black Community”.
