What Maggie Anderson wanted to do sure seemed like a good idea—spending money exclusively with black owned businesses—where she knew the owners, knew the workers and knew the community would benefit from an injection of cash. But as the author of Our Black Year will tell us, perceptions of her idea were far different outside her own circle. On Thursday’s Sound of Ideas, we’ll hear about Anderson’s Empowerment Experiment and whether targeting your dollars to one community makes a difference.

Guests

Maggie Anderson, Author, Our Black Year
Marsha Mockabee, President & CEO, Urban League of Greater Cleveland
