Closing the 228 Year Racial Wealth Gap with Jonathan Johnson Sincerely, Hueman: Stories of Kindness and Doing Good

    • Society & Culture

Did you know that the net worth of a typical White family is nearly ten times greater than that of a Black family? And since the 1970s, this racial wealth gap has grown steadily.

In 2016, it was reported that it would take 228 years for the average Black family to build the wealth of an average white family today. Our guest this week, Jonathan Johnson, set out to change that. Jonathan is the founder and CEO of Rooted School, a nonprofit that partners with communities to open charter high schools that address local talent gaps.

We’re sharing Jonathan’s powerful story — including how he fought hard to become the first person in his family to graduate from college and pave pathways for students to find financial freedom.
