Did you know the first woman who chartered a bank was black?

Maggie Lena Walker was born in 1867 to former slave parents. She took many accounting and business classes during school, and after she graduated, she chartered the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank in 1903.

Krystin- No, I did not know that! And given the time, that was an amazing accomplishment.

Morning Krystin.

No I did not, working on the "G's" right now.  Expect to see her in one of my blogs in the future.
