The question posed in a post (you will see it embedded below) on my Sixth Ward IG page is what we can do about the dwindling number of Black-owned banks in this nation? I only wish there was an easy answer, but for a 52 year old neighborhood lender to go under as it had is certainly a shock and was years in the making.
Here's hoping that in striving to make Black communities very prosperous places to live we keep an eye on our businesses and support them. And conversely they continue to provide the necessary products and services with excellent customer service. There are definitely lessons to be learned here to insure we make it very difficult for something like this to happen again.
In the meanwhile feel free to click on this link which is basically to all posts labeled Seaway Bank over at The Sixth Ward. Perhaps I'll continue to talk about this bank and it's history. What I fear is that this once very important financial institution will be forgotten in the future. It shouldn't be as many others have been.
I'm closing #blackhistorymonth2017✊🏾 with a link to be placd in bio temporarily of all stories with did about the late #seawaybankchicago. What do we do about the dwindling number of #blackownedbanks in this nation? I wish there was an easy answer to this. #chicagogram #southside #chatham #seawaynationalbank #seawaybankandtrustcompany #seawaybank
