As the recession continues, minority households are disproportionately affected by lost jobs, foreclosures and reduced savings. Worse still, the wealth gap between African American and white families continue to expand as the foreclosure crisis wipes out the largest source of wealth for minorities. Consumers concerned about securing their homes, reducing debt, increasing savings, overcoming financial fears, or starting a small business can learn first-hand from nationally-recognized experts at the Moneywise Empowerment Seminar on Saturday, January 28, 2012, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Center of Praise Ministries 1228 23rd Street, Sacramento, CA 95816.

Lovelace, Jr. the featured event speakers include Moneywise TV Host Kelvin Boston, Valerie Coleman Morris – Financial Journalist and Author, Carl Jefferson – President of the National Association Of Human Resource Professionals, Robert Ferguson – Fitness Expert and Author of Diet-Free for Life, and Reverend Anthony Brown – National Gospel Recording Artist.
