This week Ann and Dan discuss heirs’ property. It is estimated that 76% of Black people today don’t have wills. This is historically how multiple generations of Black families have lost family property. It is also why about 90% of the Black southern farmers lost their land. We had the unfortunate opportunity here in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to witness Black families lose homes that have been in their families for 100 or more years.
We’ve stressed estate planning many times on the podcast and continue to stress it. Even if you don’t think you have anything, having a will should be standard practice.
