OneUnited Bank Teams Up With The Breakfast Club Raising $700,000 In Celebrity Donations During Social Justice Radiothon


Diddy, Kevin Hart, Cardi B., Eminem, DJ Khaled, will.i.am, Ludacris Donated Hundreds of Thousands

On November 16, 2017, OneUnited Bank, the largest black owned bank in America, teamed up with Charlemagne Tha God and The Breakfast Club, a progressive national black radio platform, on their Change4Change Radiothon.  In an effort to support the "troops in the field" of the social justice movement, The Radiothon succeeded in raising over $700,000 to benefit The Gathering for Justice, an organization whose mission is to promote social justice, eliminate racial inequalities and prevent child incarceration. Harry Belafonte founded The Gathering for Justice in 2005 after he witnessed a news report of a 5-year-old black girl being handcuffed and arrested in her classroom for "being unruly." The organization is the fiscal sponsor for Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Campaign and The National Women's March.

Celebrities including Diddy, Kevin Hart, Cardi B., Eminem, DJ Khaled, will.i.am, Ludacris, Fat Joe, Swiss Beatz, Remy Ma and Nick Cannon donated generously to the Radiothon. But the real heroes were the thousands of Breakfast Club listeners who donated $1, $5, $10, & $20.

OneUnited Bank's support of Change4Change demonstrates the true power of "collective economics" and the positive ripple effect it can have. During a live interview about his $100,000 donation, Diddy commented, "It's incredible. This is how we should use our power."

Teri Williams, President & COO of OneUnited Bank, states that now is the best time to build personal and community wealth by using technology and financial literacy. We also need to use our collective economic power to defend ourselves and fight for social justice.

OneUnited Bank encourages the Black community and its allies to not only move their money or #BankBlack, but also move their minds to do more business with Black owned businesses or #BuyBlack and #BuildBlack. The Change4Change partnership exemplifies OneUnited Bank's commitment to the social and economic justice movements.

The Breakfast Club will take donations through December 1, 2017.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
