Workshop Title: Bruce's Beach
Date: Tuesday, October 18th
Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm, EST (via Zoom)
Presenters: Megan Staples, University of Connecticut; Kaitlyn Seeto, Framingham Public Schools; Toby Way, Ethel Walker School
In this session, we engage participants in a modeling problem solving task in relation to Bruce's Beach, a Manhattan Beach (LA area) property that was taken from the Bruce family through eminent domain nearly 100 years ago. We use this real situation to understand the loss of wealth to the Bruce family, and prompt a discussion about intergenerational wealth and our current disparities between white and non-white families in America today.
