OneUnited Bank, the largest Black-owned bank in the United States, has just unveiled a new debit card design in honor of Black History Month.
On Thursday, February 13, 2020, OneUnited Bank introduced a new limited-edition Harriet Tubman Visa debit card featuring the work of Miami artist, Addonis Parker.
In 2016, it was announced that Harriet Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. However, after several years have passed, that has not yet been the case. OneUnited Bank decided to honor Harriet Tubman by placing her on a form of payment in the meantime.
“We have the power to place Harriet Tubman on a global payment device in celebration of Black History Month and in tribute to the many others who freed enslaved people,” their website reads. “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 be available throughout 2020. Customers who obtain the Harriet Tubman card will be able to carry the card design for life.
