Listen: Street Talk Episode 47: Bank branch closures take greatest toll on majority-black areas

Bank branches are much less likely to be located in majority-black communities — even high-income ones — than other parts of the U.S, according to an investigation by S&P Global Market Intelligence. In the episode, Zach Fox, a senior reporter and author of the analysis, discusses how the disparity between majority-black neighborhoods and other areas has grown in recent years, what has driven the change, which institutions have closed the most branches in those markets, what happens to communities when banks leave and whether current regulations such as the Community Reinvestment Act encourage institutions to serve those markets.
