Happy Juneteenth and Father's Day 2022!

On the Minority Money Podcast, we talk a lot about equality and representation and why they’re such an important factor in human empowerment. This week, we’re taking a step back from our regularly scheduled program for a special episode dedicated to celebrating Juneteenth and Father’s Day. 

With this being the first federal holiday of Juneteenth, I want to shed more light on the historical context of the day and what it means to many Americans, especially African-Americans such as myself. In addition, I’ll talk about the country’s rising state of interest rates and what those changes mean for you and your finances.
