Is Black Tax a Burden or Responsibility?

The Chatrooom presenter Amo Helang speaks to Bonga Mkhize, contributing author of the book Black Tax and Mwezi Sukude, a marketing co-ordinator on black tax which is something that almost all successful young black people have to deal with.

Urban dictionary defines the phrase as: “The extra money that black professionals are expected to give every month to support their less fortunate family and extended families.” Unsurprisingly, much of what has been written about black tax has focused on the negative aspects. This episode looks at all angles of black tax.
