    This webinar examines the wealth inequalities and health disparities in the Black community. By looking at specific practices, the webinar will attempt to outline the role of the law in maintaining or correcting wealth inequalities. "The biggest predictor of one's health is one's wealth. It's not just the poor who are suffering; every step down the class pyramid corresponds to worse health. Wealth is an important determinant of health because it has such a profound effect on other conditions. Yet at every socioeconomic level, African Americans are doing much fare worse than their white counterparts. Racism as a stress factor independent of class partially explains this, but racism for example, in the form of residential segregation or job discrimination, also directly affects wealth.” Background Paper on Wealth and Income, Unnatural Causes. For more information contact, Professor Vernellia Randall, The University of Dayton School of Law, [email protected].
