According to a recent report from Harvard University only 43 percent of black adults in the U.S. own homes compared to 72 percent of whites in 2017. In this segment, we'll examine what drives racial disparities in homeownership, including "redlining," a government sanctioned practice that made it difficult for African Americans and immigrants to purchase homes. And we want to hear from you -- what questions do you have about the history of redlining, bank deserts, and discriminatory banking? Or, do you have an experience trying to buy a home that you want to share with us?
