Michelle Singletary’s award-winning column in the Washington Post is called, “The Color of Money.”  Her motto is, “Spend Well, Live Rich.” Her advice has helped and inspired all kinds of people. Her books are bestsellers and her appearances on radio and TV have made her a trusted voice in personal finance.

Singletary has also made it her mission to offer advice to people who are incarcerated or are otherwise in difficult financial circumstances that seem impossible to navigate. As a Black woman, she’s a pioneering voice for financial independence and wealth generation.

Host Angela Davis talks to Singletary about her new book, “What to Do With Your Money When Crisis Hits.” Together, they took listener questions about saving, spending, surviving and thriving during these critical times.
