Black Heirlooms

Black Heirlooms, by Amanda Brown, is a documentary about wealth in America from an intergenerational perspective. When the 86 year old matriarch, Mee-Mah Royal was hospitalized after a stroke, her 8 children became irreconcilably divided over her care and small estate or roughly $51,000. Through the stories of her children, grandchildren, and supporting interviews with prominent researchers, lawyers, and financial planners Black Heirlooms examines the need for intergenerational planning to transfer family wealth, traditions, and values. Join this critical conversation about intergenerational wealth and the growing wealth gap in America 

The NY Times had an article about this film on November 30, 2014 and an 18 minute version of the documentary can be seen on YouTube.
