CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A peaceful march was organized in uptown Charlotte on Sunday as the Banking Black group held signs outside Bank of America off of South Tryon Street.
The group marched to M&F Bank which is the second oldest Black-owned bank in the country.
"We are just getting people excited and aware we have a Black-owned financial institution right here in our backyard." Symone Stuber, a protester at the event, told WCNC Charlotte.
Supporters of Banking Black say M&F Bank is smaller and needs support unlike bigger banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America.
The Charlotte M&F Bank location can be found at 101 Beatties Ford Road.
