The upcoming Wealth Literacy Conference, the first of its kind in Madison, is looking to change the conversation from financial literacy to wealth literacy for BIPOC and marginalized communities. Afra Smith of The Melanin Project and Veronica Barnes of Mindset2Money, two Black female financial leaders, will be the hosts of the event on Saturday, April 29, at the Goodman Community Center on Madison’s near east side.
“Our pillars this year are focused on mindset, action planning and community … and we really wanted to start moving the conversation from financial literacy to wealth literacy because wealth literacy is transformational,” Smith says. “It’s how you can build generational wealth. It’s how you can focus on keeping money within your community and making that dollar last in the community.”
