Kim Fields Says Bank Black

Kim Fields has taken her community activism to a new level by partnering with The U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. in its campaign to “Bank Black.” In the 75-second video spot below (dated July 25, 2016), Kim exhorts those in the audience who are “serious about social change” to Bank Black. She observes that “economics and credit are at the core of America’s heart.” One way to generate change right now in that heart is acquiring access to credit. Liberty Bank, one of America’s historic Black banks, provides one of those pathways to credit as highlighted by the following promotion…

The latest promotion comes via the Liberty Credit Card. Here is how the U.S. Black Chambers (USBC) describes the effort:

“In the wake of recent police brutality and ongoing acts of social injustice against the Black community; the USBC continues to take an economic-stand by encouraging Black Americans to take Bank-Black a step further by securing a line of credit with a Black bank.

Several banks exist in the U.S. with the “Liberty Bank” label in their names. This credit card is offered by Liberty Bank at The bank describes its mission as follows:

“Liberty’s mission is to provide cost-effective delivery of high quality, innovative, customer driven financial products and services to diverse markets with a focus on disadvantaged minority communities who have traditionally been underserved. Concurrent with the bank’s mission, Liberty strives to maintain the Company’s status as a catalyst for economic and community development while generating fair returns to shareholders and being an excellent corporate citizen.”
