Baltimore, MD  The numbers are startling. Research indicates that by 2053, the net worth of African Americans - now valued at $95,261 - will completely dissolve down to $0. What is the main cause for the great divide? Education and access. In order for the next generation of black and brown students to achieve these two keys to success, they must see themselves in professional roles.

TruUnity, a Baltimore-based organization that uses its resources to help black and brown students achieve success, announces the kickoff of it's "Buy One, Give One" t-shirt campaign. For every Future Millionaire shirt purchased, another shirt will be donated to youth in Baltimore City and Lancaster City, Penn., to help break the stigma around minority success.

Whether it's in day-to-day life, high profile positions or television, research shows that there is a strong relationship between children of color, low self-esteem and the lack of role models that look like them. In order to nourish the next generation, black and brown students must feel empowered to expand their minds and see themselves in role models who are achieving in professional settings. TruUnity offers just that.
