Course Description

The American tax system treats Whites and Blacks differently, and the disparity is growing. Tax rates, loopholes, history, enforcement ... all of it culminates in depriving Blacks of financial means and public services. Join Matt Doran as he interviews Prof. Francine Lipman of UNLV Law, the nation's foremost expert on how federal, state and local tax policies prevent Blacks from accumulating the money needed to thrive. You will not think about taxes the same again.
