John Hope Bryant responds to societal pressure to migrate money into African American-owned institutions. As the author of the modern Silver Rights Movement led by Operation HOPE, John Hope Bryant highlights the importance of investing in African American-owned institutions as part of a strategy -- versus in a punitive capacity. Bryant suggests that we should learn what FDIC-insured banks are doing to invest money back into our communities first, before making uninformed decisions and hastily transferring capital. Bryant goes on to explain that as a community, WE have the power to encourage investment in our own neighborhoods, by increasing entrepreneurial energy and making informed decisions with our finances.
