#BlackMoneyMattersLA Partners with OneUnited Bank to Re-Direct the Black Dollar

Saturday, #BlackMoneyMattersLA activists collaborated with OneUnited Bank to convey the importance of the black dollar and how to re-direct our purchasing power back to African-American businesses and communities. Sponsored by OneUnited Bank at its Crenshaw branch, the event brought together black families, advocates, clergy leaders and celebrities to bring attention to the matter as a direct response to the recent shooting deaths of Philando Castile, Alton Sterling and many others. Comedian G-Thang hosted the outside venue, coating the hearts of those impacted by the myriad of tragedies against blacks with some lighthearted banter. The awareness also included a powerhouse performance by the incomparable Miki Howard, who brought the house down with crowd favorites. Meanwhile, countless community members flooded the inside of the bank
