Author
  • Noreen Siddiqui (Iowa State University)

Abstract

This interactive session will explore the intersection of class and race in America and how past racism is perpetuated through wealth. Participants will view a segment from the film Race: The Power of an Illusion, examining the housing crunch following WWII and assess how financial opportunities affect generations with a family net worth exercise adapted from David M. Seiter’s lesson plan: “The Growth of the Suburbs—and the Racial Wealth Gap.” Discussion and comparisons of factors affecting net worth and a self-assessment of factors influencing participants’ family wealth will be included.
