The Stock Market is one of the quickest ways to accumulate wealth in America. Yet many African Americans are not participating in this lucrative market. Low African-American participation in the stock market contributes to the widening wealth gap between black and white households. Studies show that African Americans are 35 percent less likely to take part in the stock market as compared to white people with the same income. Why are African Americans reluctant to invest in the stock market? What barriers exist that prevent or discourage African Americans from participating in the stock market? In this podcast show, the Espresso Talk Today team will discuss the importance of the stock market in wealth accumulation and how to get started in the stock market. We are joined by J.R. Fenwick, Founder and CEO of Flip That Stock, a leading education company that specializes in teaching beginners and how to get started in the stock market and be successful in the stock market. Join us for this uncommon wealth-building conversation!
