Andre Perry is a Fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, a scholar-in-residence at American University and a columnist for the Hechinger Report.

Perry’s recent scholarship at Brookings has analyzed Black-majority cities and institutions in America, focusing on valuable assets worthy of increased investment.

In this discussion, we’ll be talking about Perry’s forthcoming book, Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities, and how we can better evaluate the policies affecting Black businesses across the innovation ecosystem.

Key takeaways:

  • Determining the value of assets in Black communities
  • Understanding the policies affecting Black businesses in Black communities
  • How Yelp ratings of Black businesses further drive a divide, and solutions at the helm
