OneUnited Bank Launches Black History Month Campaign With New King Card


Celebrates New Kings and Queens in Royalty Campaign

Published on February 08, 2019

In celebration of Black History Month, OneUnited Bank, the largest Black owned bank in America, launches its Royalty Campaign by introducing its new King Visa Debit Card.

OneUnited Bank is celebrating a new generation of Kings and Queens in America who are claiming their thrones. From scientists to activists, from educators to entertainers, the black community is celebrating Black excellence.

Whether it’s Kendrick Lamar’s DNA, or Black Panther’s Wakanda, or the late Queen of Soul (Aretha Franklin), Queen Bey (Beyoncé), King James (LeBron), Nat King Cole, Queen Latifah, Q.U.E.E.N. Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu and of course, Dr. Martin Luther King (given a royal name at birth)…Black Kings and Queens are changing the world!

“We agree with James Baldwin,” states Teri Williams, President & COO. “Our crown has already been bought and paid for. All we have to do is wear it. We encourage the Black community to unleash the King and Queen in them and celebrate the past, present, and future Kings and Queens in our community.”

OneUnited Bank introduces the King Card and the Royalty #WearYourCrown Campaign to take the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack Movement to the next level during #BlackHistoryMonth.
