Atlanta based rapper/civic leader Killer Mike
jump started Black History Month in Atlanta alongside Usher, Jermaine Dupri & more, by encouraging the support of local, Black owned banks.
Mike hit the net this morning with the following plea:
We are gonna be opening accounts there and we encourage all of u too do the same! U can keep ya big bank account and use this one as a Savings or you can bring the whole operation. What ever u decide make sure at least 1 account is with a black bank turning that dollar in our community!
