Common Wealth Club: Heather McGhee-The Sum of Us

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

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.
