Americans for Financial Reform will host a fireside chat on The Hidden Racism in the Tax Code today as part of its Take on Wall Street campaign at 11:00 A.M. EST (register here):
The Take on Wall Street campaign of Americans for Financial Reform will host a fireside chat with Dr. Dorothy A. Brown and Dr. Darrick Hamilton to discuss the white supremacy inherent in our tax code and how American tax policies impoverish Black Americans while enriching white Americans.
Another fantastic opportunity to hear Professor Brown discuss her groundbreaking 2021 book, “The Whiteness of Wealth” with the always engaging and evocative economist Dr. Darrick Hamilton. Hamilton is a university professor, the Henry Cohen Professor of Economics and Urban Policy, and the founding director of the Institute for the Study of Race, Power and Political Economy at The New School.
Dr. Hamilton is the energizing and inspiring genius behind the BabyBonds and the Federal Jobs Guarantee movements (among others). Dr. Hamilton recently chaired the Economic Justice Committee conversation #BlackEconomistsMatter hosted by ABA Civil Rights and Social Justice Section.
