Regina King (309022)

Oscar-winning actress Regina King knows she’s had a head start on financial education that others haven’t, especially in the Black community, reports Afro Tech. Her mom always told her to be careful of how much money she spent in comparison to what was saved. Credit cards and loans were also something that was discussed from the time King was a little girl. Because of these early conversations, the Oscar-winning actress now knows she’s had a head start on financial education that others haven’t, especially in the Black community.

King is partnering with banking giant Wells Fargo to promote financial literacy. King is also featured in their latest campaign “Real Life Ready,” which promotes Wells Fargo’s Active Cash Visa card and rewards system that suits the consumer’s daily needs.

“We are thrilled to be working with Regina King, whose own authenticity is showcased in our campaign, as she demonstrates through her genuine life experiences how Active Cash is a straightforward credit card that makes it easy to earn 2 percent cash rewards on purchases,” Krista Phillips, Wells Fargo’s head of branded cards and marketing.

“I was drawn to Wells Fargo given the bank’s continued commitment to underserved communities,” King said. She is also the first major face to partner with the banking giant.
