Amanda Brown came from a large, close-knit family, headed by its beloved Matriarch Mee-Mah Royal. Tragically, it took little over $51,000 to tear them all apart.

On Saturday, June 4th from 1:00-3:00 p.m., bring your entire family to a special screening hosted by Flateau Realty Corp. and co-sponsored by the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation of the powerful must-see film, Black Heirlooms, which documents the pain felt by three generations of a family that failed to plan.

Directed by Brown, this short documentary painfully demonstrates how the failure to create an inheritance or legacy plan contributes greatly to this gap and, tragically, can tear some families apart.

According to Forbes, the typical white household has 16 times the wealth of a black household. This wealth gap has severe consequences for future generations of African-Americans. In an effort to generate awareness and help close this gap, Flateau Realty Corp., along with the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, has gathered a panel of esteemed real estate, legal and financial experts to discuss the stark realities of this crisis, and offer sound solutions that can save entire families and communities. Panelists include:
