“Fair” Housing and Opportunity Hoarding – Terrence Franklin Hosts ACTEC Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Video

In recognition of Fair Housing Month in April, the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) shares an enlightening video discussion, “Fair” Housing and Opportunity Hoarding, with author and Georgetown University Professor Dr. Sheryll Cashin, hosted by Partner Terrence Franklin. In the video, Professor Cashin debunks the myths of fair housing policy in America and presents compelling information on the historical impact of systemic racism in housing and lending policies.

Franklin also interviews Professor Cashin about her book White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality. A topic of conversation is the federal government’s role in classifying Black neighborhoods in the 1930s as hazardous, which contributed significantly to the wealth gap by eliminating accessibility to mortgages and cutting Black communities out of generational wealth opportunities through homeownership.

Watch the video “Fair” Housing and Opportunity Hoarding.

The video series was created as a project of ACTEC’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Committee, funded by The ACTEC Foundation, and will continue throughout 2022 featuring new guests and topics each month.
