This is a narrative storytelling qualitative research study on Black wealth mobility. Through a Critical Race Theory and Anti-Black Racism lens, this study allows the experiences of Black social service workers to help understand the route and tools used when navigating wealth mobility, and creating a separate space to define the Black experience throughout this process. Existing research shows there are significant gaps in attaining wealth for Black communities, and very little surrounding solutions for these gaps. As social service providers, participants were able to not only make suggestions for social supports to be developed, but also to utilize counter-storying telling to pinpoint issues existing within the current social sector which also contribute to these gaps in Black communities. This research not only gave a space for Black bodies to express and share their experiences, but also a space to critically reflect on the work done in these communities.
