HOPE Credit Union, a Bank with a Twist (USA, 6 min)
Directed by Micro Documentaries
How might we address income inequality, the civil rights issue of our time? What happens when you up-end all the negative stereotypes about banks and put them squarely in service of the community? When banks started disappearing in the Mississippi Delta, transforming low- and mid-income communities into ‘bank deserts’ where people couldn’t get a loan or secure their savings, William Bynum turned despair into hope by founding a new sort of bank.
