About the Program

In "Our Black Year," Maggie Anderson writes about the year her family spent engaged in the economic experiment of buying exclusively from African-American owned business - and how difficult that was to do in her home area of Chicago.  She discusses the importance of what she calls conscious consumerism with Washington Post reporter Krissah Thompson.
