In this post we want to take a more macro, large picture, view of how the Opportunity Zone policy can impact the Black community specifically. In this post we will discuss the possibility of gentrification, the requirement of capital gains, job opportunities, and the quickly approaching 2026 deadline for the OZ policy.
Opportunity Zones have been the buzz of the economic and investment communities since 2018.This will be a three part blog series with each blog post also having an accompanied video. First we will dive into what an Opportunity Zone is and the basics on how it works. Then we will discuss the general pros and cons of Opportunity Zones. Lastly we will walk through how they might be useful in building the next Black Wall Street.
