Today In History We Honor Maggie Lena Walker
‘Maggie Lena Walker was the first African American female bank president and the first woman to charter a bank in the United States. The St. Luke Penny Savings Bank was founded in 1903 with money gathered from the members of the Independent Order of St. Luke, an African-American benevolent society, Walker opened the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank. She found that white-owned banks did not readily accept deposits from black organizations such as the benevolent society. This reluctance on the part of white-owned banks gave her the idea to start her own bank.’
