Access and Black Capital

In this clip, listen as the daughter of the founder of the first Black banks and credit unions in Seattle discusses the motivations her father had for founding these institutions. She describes the importance of being able to collectively support one another and having access to capital. Her dialogue partner considers the relationship between Black capitalism and collective liberation and success.
