Dr. Boyce Watkins, a Finance Professor at Syracuse University is planning to speak with Rev. Jesse Jackson on Keep Hope Alive Radio to discuss the stimulus plan recently released by President Barack Obama. The $819 Billion dollar plan just passed in Congress and is set to be presented to the Senate for final approval.
Dr. Watkins is a Financial expert, and will also appear with Dr. Julianne Malveaux, President of Bennett College for women, to discuss the plan. Watkins has written extensively about the Obama economic plan and finding ways to ensure that African Americans can get their piece of the economic pie.
“Obama might be a Black President, but he honestly can’t say the word “black” within 100 feet of the White House,” says Dr. Watkins, who is authoring a book on African American Wealth Building. “The truth of the matter is that Black people and poor people must ensure that they get a piece of this pie.”
