In this talk, Sharon Cornelissen, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Joint Center, will discuss findings from “Black Immigrant Homeownership: National Trends and the Case of Metro Boston,” a paper she coauthored with Daniel McCue and Raheem Hanifa. She will discuss the growing number of Black immigrant households, show which groups of Black immigrants have become homeowners and where they’ve bought homes, and how these trends are playing out in greater Boston. She will also discuss how policymakers can account for the strengths and challenges of Black immigrants as they work to support and expand Black homeownership.
