Lori Latrice Martin held a signing of her new book "Black Asset Poverty and the Enduring Racial Divide," which mentions the Hesdra family of Nyack. The signing was on Monday, Dec. 17 aat the Nyack Library.

There were rarely-seen photos of members of the Hesdra family on display and the book can be bought online at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.

According to Amazon's description of the book:

Claims of a postracial society notwithstanding, there are enormous and even expanding differences in the level of assets owned by various racial and ethnic groups and black families are vastly overrepresented among the asset poor. Lori Martin provides an in-depth exploration of the causes and consequences of racial wealth inequality.

Drawing on both national data and case studies from New York City, Martin probes the reasons for discrepancies in wealth accumulation and their significance for black Americans of all economic classes. Her work allows a deeper understanding of the impact of asset poverty on individuals, families, communities, and the nation as a whole.
