In the U.S., the average Black family’s wealth is only a fraction of the average white family — about 13%. And that wealth gap between white and Black families has remained pretty constant for the last 30 years. Crain’s Chicago Business has been exploring the disparities of wealth in Chicago — what’s driving it, and what can be done about it — in its monthly Equity series. Reset dives into the series, and takes a look and what efforts are being made to close the wealth gap in Chicago.
