This podcast examines the progress that Black Americans have made in the post-Civil Rights era. The main question that we seek to answer is "Why Black Americans continue to lag behind all other groups in education and economics"? Is this a byproduct of racism? Is it largely due to the influence of Black Culture, (Black-Self Sabotage)? We seek to answer that question and provide a self-help action plan on how to move forward.
