Meet author Don Hayner and learn about Jesse Binga, the first black banker in Chicago whose bank was located on the current Illinois Tech campus. He rose to wealth and influence as a realtor, and in 1908 he founded the Binga Bank, the first black-owned bank in Chicago. Binga tells the story of racial change in one of the most segregated cities in America. Binga illuminates how an extraordinary Chicagoan embued a community isolated by racial animosity with hope.
