Students gain insight into the difference between family income and net worth, the role that wealth can play in future opportunities, and how structural racism – in the form of discriminatory government housing policies and practices – contributed to creating the racial wealth gap. Pre-viewing activities, video screening, and discussion questions help students make these connections between history, wealth and opportunity.
