NASCUS notes value of community for Black History Month

(Feb. 4, 2022) NASCUS has endeavored, since its inception, toward the ideal that “we become a better version of ourselves when we come together,” NASCUS President and CEO Brian Knight said this week in honor of the opening of Black History Month throughout February.

“We join with our peers throughout the credit union movement in celebrating Black History Month and recognizing the immeasurable contributions of the African Diaspora to the credit union system and the nation at large,” Knight said in a statement.

He also indicated that more time should be dedicated for acknowledgements. “The need to understand the value and contributions of all communities should be a year-round, lifelong commitment to the inclusion of everyone’s stories into the fabric of our shared history,” he said.
