Episode 9: Banks for the Memories

Episode 9: "Banks for the Memories" tells the story of black banking -- both traditional and nontraditional -- in Baltimore City. With the presence of pawn shops, private lenders, and the city's last black-owned bank left standing, Baltimore City's black communities has been a hotbed of financial activity for over a century. Featured voices include antiques appraiser and historian Philip J Merrill, Harbor Bank Chairman, President, and CEO Joseph Haskins, and I Am O'KAH founder Aisha DaCosta.
