U.S. Bank proudly celebrates Black History Month by recognizing four of their key community partners across the country who are planting the seeds of possibility: Dr. Eve M. Hall, president of the Milwaukee Urban League; Jackie Taylor, founder and CEO of Black Ensemble Theater in Chicago; Dr. Belinda Allen, executive director of West Angeles Community Development Corporation in Los Angeles; and Linda Harris, senior vice president of the Urban League of Metro St. Louis.
“Celebrating Black History Month is an opportunity for us to celebrate the leaders in our communities who we partner with to make a tangible difference,” said Greg Cunningham, vice president, diversity and inclusion for U.S. Bank. “Through Community Possible, we’re proud to support the communities where we live, work and play–and these nonprofit organizations who make life better for all our neighbors.”
Dr. Hall is empowering communities and changing lives in Milwaukee. She began her involvement with the Urban League teaching after-school programs in Tampa, Florida. In taking the helm of the Milwaukee Urban League, Dr. Hall continues her work as a change agent, helping communities of color secure their future through a myriad of local programs and services.
“U.S. Bank has always been a strong partner,” said Hall, “especially in the areas of economic empowerment through workforce development and financial literacy. U.S. Bank believes in who we are and they support our mission of empowering communities and changing lives.”
The Milwaukee Urban League, supported by U.S. Bank since 1994, works for economic, educational and social progress for African Americans and promotes strong, sustainable communities through advocacy, collaboration and innovation.
