ReShonda Young is trying to do something nobody in the country has managed in more than 20 years. Open a new Black-owned bank.
In the second season of The Heist, we follow her quest to confront the enormous wealth gap between Black and white Americans with tools of the banking system that has helped perpetuate it. And we tell the story of that gap, a centuries-long heist pulled off through virulent discrimination.
