Black Homeownership: Why It Is Different for Us & How to Turn It Around


The fact that the Black homeownership gap continues to persist since the passing of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, is evidence of how much more needs to be done to address the issue. JOIN US for an insightful presentation delivered by a panel of experts in the field. You'll learn what is different for African Americans when it comes to homeownership and why it is a major cause of the racial wealth gap. We'll discuss trends and opportunities in the Queens, Long Island, Bronx, and Westchester markets. Finally, you'll discover important tips and advice on the home-buying process. The first 20 people who register and attend the event will receive a free copy of book “A Guide to Becoming a Homeowner for African Americans (Yes It’s Different for Us)”.

This event is sponsored by the QCC BFSA and is open to all QCC faculty, staff, and students.
