About the Module


Welcome to the Mahogany Legacy Project! The course is designed to discuss and explore some of the current and historical systemic and institutional barriers associated with racism and how it influences many of the negative socioeconomic challenges for African Americans today. The course content is beneficial for organizations seeking to improve DEI programming, small businesses and government agencies interested in enacting the numerous recommendations, and individuals seeking to learn more about these factors. The overall scope of the course is to answer the central question posed by the project, “What would the Civil Rights leaders in the past attempt to address today if they were still alive?” Their efforts encompassed the most basic of socioeconomic rights and equalities during the Civil Rights era. The content for this course addresses areas such as educational attainment gaps, healthcare quality outcomes, healthcare disparities, mental health, HBCUs, homeownership, economic mobility, macro and microeconomics, social justice, employment, and entrepreneurship.

The course consists Module 5, The Progressive Change of Financial Independence, of The Mahogany Legacy Project (MLP). The learning objectives are as follows:

  • Examine economic and financial institutions and how it affects Black economic growth. 
  • Examine asset accumulation for developing Black wealth (i.e., investing, real estate, etc.).
  • Capture habits and traits of millionaires to communicate realistic expectations towards wealth accumulation. 
  • Outline a viable blueprint to transfer generational wealth.
