*In honor of 2013 being the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, Wells Fargo is honoring the progress of African Americans through a partnership with the Kinsey Collection, an assemblage of historical art from founders Bernard and Shirley Kinsey.
Lauren London, star of BET’s “The Game,” was chosen to narrate a promo spot for the initiative. [Scroll down to watch.]
In the clip, London muses over the importance of speaking up during moments of injustice and introduces the Kinsey family, who started the Kinsey Collection, whose treasured pieces of history and art commemorate the artistic, historic, and cultural contributions and progress of African Americans prior to and following the Emancipation Proclamation.
Wells Fargo worked closely with the Kinsey family to create an experience that will last through December 2013.
