The Local Take Talks Food Buying Co-Op in South DeKalb

Aug 10, 2018

On The Local Take on WCLK I spoke with Wayne Early of the South DeKalb Improvement Association(SDIA) about a recently launched Food Buying Co-Op for the community. Early, who was trained as an economist, explains what a co-op is and how they work. He emphasizes that co-ops provide the community with an opportunity to work together towards a common goal.  

Wayne Early is an economist and realtor who is a member of the South Dekalb Improvement Association.  He spoke with us about Home Valuation and Appraisal Discrimination. 

We discussed lagging home prices in African American neighborhoods and the challenges that home owners face when selling their homes. He spoke about the Realtor rules and regulations that have begun to evolve but once considered it unethical to show African Americans homes in majority White neighborhood.
