About BankBlack USA
BankBlackUSA is an independent, grassroots organization that formed out of the larger #BankBlack Movement following deadly police shootings in Black communities in July 2016, and in the belief the modernized mobilization could lead to effectual, collective movement within our community. Their work builds on a long legacy of connecting our cooperative, economic power and community resourcing in effort to create and improve social and racial justice, and equity in America.
The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Thursday, April 29th at 6:30pm. Click on the link for more information.
