Celebrates Black History Month with Tubman's Legacy of Freedom

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- OneUnited Bank, the largest Black owned bank in America, introduces the new limited-edition Harriet Tubman Card in celebration of Black History Month.

Harriet Tubman not only escaped slavery, she made nineteen missions to bring 300 others, including family and friends, to freedom. She also served as an armed scout for the Union Army and was an activist in the struggle for women's voting rights. Given her profound impact on American history, she deserves to be on the $20 bill.

"We have the power to place Harriet Tubman on a global payment device in celebration of Black History Month," states Teri Williams, President & COO. "This symbol of Black empowerment in 2020 will pave the way for the Harriet Tubman design on the $20 bill."

The Harriet Tubman Visa Debit Card is the first limited edition card offered by OneUnited Bank and will only be available in 2020. The card image is from the painting "The Conqueror" by the internationally acclaimed artist Addonis Parker. Anyone who obtains the limited-edition Harriet Tubman Card in 2020 can carry the card design for life.

In addition to its limited-edition Harriet Tubman Card, OneUnited Bank will promote the "Right to Vote" theme for Black History Month to elevate the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack Movements to the next level and beyond. For more information visit www.oneunited.com/HarrietTubman.

Funny considering she had serious issues with money and how it was used in her time.

Teri Williams looks like exactly the sort of person who would think this was a brilliant idea. Pandering ain't just for Whitey anymore.

Also lol at that completely organic #BankBlack "movement".
Somebody remind her that the phrase "race card" wasn't meant to be taken LITERALLY. Knowing her, she's probably approaching her credit limit with that.

I would bet any sum of money, and anything else, that Andrew Jackson accomplished more incredible feats on behalf of more people than Harriet Tubman.

Andrew Jackson was an asshole who ignored the Supreme Court and violated legally upheld treaties. Tubman was a gun owner and Republican who would probably react to hood rats like MLK Jr in that Boondocks episode if she were alive today.
