The discussion allows for candid dialogue around credit, money management and building wealth. Featured panelists will address pre-submitted audience questions, providing professional guidance as well as personal insights based on experience.

“The subject of money has traditionally been a very private matter within the African American community, most likely because of our strong sense of self-reliance and pride,” says Michelle Thornhill, “Whatever the reason, it’s time to get comfortable with talking about money matters so we can learn and grow .”

The program will air across multiple One Solution platforms:

• Radio One: Listeners can tune in on the following stations: Atlanta (WAMJ-FM), Baltimore (WWIN-FM), Charlotte (WQNC-FM), Cleveland (WZAK), Columbus (WXMG-FM), Dallas (KSOC-FM), Detroit (WDMK-FM), Houston (KMJQ-FM), Indianapolis (WTLC-FM), Philadelphia(WRNB-FM), Raleigh (WFXK-FM), Richmond (WKJM-FM, WKJS-FM), St. Louis (WFUN-FM) and Washington D.C.
