When it comes to actor, Leslie Odom Jr., he’s always using his platform for the better and to help people.
Well, this new initiative is no different case, Odom Jr., has just recently teamed up with Wells Fargo in order to highlight Black entreprenuers.
In an official statement to ESSENCE, the actor said, “The story about the Gibson School of Music in Philadelphia, where I grew up, really resonated with me.”
Adding, “Hearing that first-hand account that Wells Fargo’s small business grants helped keep them afloat is one of the many reasons I had to support.”
Wells Fargo’s new series titled We Made A Way was first introduced this summer. In addition, their Open For Business Fund offers small businesses relief from the economic aftermath of COVID-19.
From Between February and April of 2020, Black business ownership declined more than 40%! With this new iniative, we believe that there is a way!
