Virtual Event Virtual Event

What does racism cost us? Tying together economics and deeply personal stories from across the United States that convey the cost of a broken system, political strategist Heather McGhee roots out the racist policies and politics that she says plague the finances and lives of Americans.

In The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together, McGhee shares both the big picture and individual tales of the cost of racism and America’s flawed zero-sum structure. Yet, there is reason for hope. In combat against this system, McGhee has seen sparks of a “Solidarity Dividend” that transcends racism and demands a win for all. Join us as McGhee sets out her vision for a future that moves beyond the zero-sum and into radical compassion to the benefit of all.
