Join the National Minority Community Reinvestment Co-Operative (NMCRC) on Wednesday, December 9th and Thursday, December 10th for the 2020 National Virtual Black and Latino Economics Summit.
Closing the racial wealth gap is imperative to realizing a strong, sustainable economy. From education to housing to healthcare to criminal justice, racial inequality continues to impede the progress of communities of color and the nation as a whole.
This two-day symposium will empower a growing network of like-minded individuals, companies, and non-profit organizations to unpack a shared vision of eliminating barriers and enhancing access to economic sustainability in Black and Latino communities.
For decades, black and brown communities have been underserved—and sometimes unserved—by the United States’ financial system. From access to banking services to redlining to subprime mortgage lending to the recent disparities in relief for small minority businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, communities of color have historically been disproportionately impacted.
The summit will provide a space for banking institutions and the communities they intend to serve to discuss access to capital, affordable housing, neighborhood development, and community reinvestment for these underserved populations. The agenda will incorporate forums and workshops to inform, educate, and encourage mutually beneficial partnerships among participants, presenters, and sponsors to stimulate economic growth in Black and Latino communities.

Andre M. Perry is a fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a scholar-in-residence at American University, and a columnist for the Hechinger Report. He is the author of the new book Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities, which is currently available wherever books are sold. A nationally known and respected commentator on race, structural inequality, and education, Perry is a regular contributor to MSNBC and has been published by The New York Times, The Nation, The Washington Post, TheRoot.com and CNN.com. Perry has also made appearances on CNN, PBS, National Public Radio, NBC, and ABC. His research focuses on race and structural inequality, education, and economic inclusion. Perry’s recent scholarship at Brookings has analyzed Black-majority cities and institutions in America, focusing on valuable assets worthy of increased investment.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Perry has documented the underlying causes for the outsized number of coronavirus-related deaths in Black communities. His Brookings research has illuminated how certain forms of social distancing historically accelerated economic and social disparities between Black people and the rest of the country. Perry also mapped racial inequities in housing, income, and health to underscore how policy discrimination makes Black Americans more vulnerable to COVID-19.
His research has spotlighted the struggles of Black businesses—including artists and art institutions, restaurants, and barbershops and beauty salons—as they await federal relief from COVID-19’s economic impact. In education, he explained how college campus closings put housing-insecure students at risk during the pandemic. He’s also written on the unrealized value of teachers’ work that’s been made apparent by COVID-19, and has commented on the potential loss of Black teachers as a result of an impending recession.
Prior to his work at Brookings, Perry has been a founding dean, professor, award-winning journalist, and activist in the field of education. In 2015, Perry served on Louisiana Governor-elect John Bel Edwards’ K-12 education transition committee, as well as on New Orleans Mayor-elect Mitch Landrieu’s transition team as its co-chair for education in 2010.

For the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Perry co-authored “School by School: The Transformation of New Orleans Public Education” in Resilience and Opportunity: Lessons from the U.S. Gulf Coast after Katrina and Rita, published by Brookings Institution Press. Perry also co-authored “The Transformation of New Orleans Public Schools: Addressing System-Level Problems Without a System,” published by the Data Center of New Orleans. He also co-authored a chapter in Between Public and Private: Politics, Governance, and the New Portfolio Models for Urban School Reform published by Harvard Education Press. Along with the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Perry co-authored the report “Place Matters for Health in Orleans Parish: Ensuring Opportunities for Good Health for All.”
