Tracing the Roots of Capitalism

In this clip, Alex and Syreeta trace the roots of capitalism, a system of oppression built off the descendants of enslaved Africans. They discuss the complexity of being in a system never intended for them

“So in a way I’m thankful that I’m a business owner, a Black woman business owner, but…we kings and queens, we don’t need a system to tell us that we’re valuable.”
