Black Quotidian: Everyday History in African-American Newspapers

September 3, 1960

On September 3, 1960, the New York Amsterdam News reported that Carver Federal, a black-owned bank, was planning to open a new branch in Brooklyn at 1273 Fulton Street. Named after George Washington Carver, Carver Federal was founded in Harlem in 1948. The bank is still active today and, like other black banks across the country, has seen an increase in new accounts and deposits thanks to the #BankBlack campaign.
