With the 2007 recession, the housing crisis and soaring unemployment rates leaving Black America’s wallet trapped in the crosshairs of the United States’ financial crisis, the lack of generational wealth in the African American community has never been in sharper focus.
Generation One takes a hard look at the numbers, giving historical context to early wealth creation in the Black community and tapping the expertise of the nation’s top financial experts to weigh in not only on how Blacks fell behind, but surefire strategies families can implement to begin building a strong financial legacy for generations to come.

How the Blog Tour Works
The blog tour will take place July 7th through July 21st. We have provided the following writing prompts which are directly aligned with the film’s message of wealth creation in the black community.
- PROMPT 1: What steps are you taking to create generational wealth for your family?
- PROMPT 2: How has your upbringing impacted your current outlook on wealth?
- PROMPT 3: How are you creating a legacy for your family?
- PROMPT 4: How has a lack of wealth effected your family and what will you do about it?
- PROMPT 5: What do you know now that you wish you had known earlier about wealth creation?
- PROMPT 6: If you are the first generation in your family to create wealth how does that feel and what are you doing?
The official film launch is on July 14th, but you can still contribute posts through the July 21st. The sooner you link your post, the higher up on the blog tour page your post will be. You do not need any special permission to blog or use any of the graphics on this page (we just ask that you use it for the purpose of the blog tour and/or to talk about Generation One).
