Did you know that property values in black neighborhoods are about 23% less than those in white neighborhoods for no other reason than race? Well, it's true—and Andre Perry is on The Leverage Podcast to talk about it. Andre is an expert on race and has been researching the disparities between white- and black-majority cities for years. His findings all point to the same thing: Assets in black-majority neighborhoods are significantly undervalued.

Andre Perry is a senior fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a scholar-in-residence at American University, columnist for the Hechinger Report, and author of the book Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities. A nationally known and respected commentator on race, structural inequality, and education, Perry is a regular contributor to MSNBC and has been published by The New York Times, The Nation, The Washington Post, TheRoot.com and CNN.com. His research focuses on race and structural inequality, education, and economic inclusion.
