On this edition of Independent Sources, we learn about Abacus Federal Savings Bank, the only financial institution to be indicted in relation to the 2008 financial crisis. Host Garry Pierre-Pierre speaks to the director of a film that explores the bank’s close ties to Manhattan’s Chinatown and why fighting the indictment was a matter of family honor. Then, we find out about an initiative created to help homeless victims of domestic abuse find affordable housing. Finally, we visit a Harlem barbershop that’s part of an emerging program that’s trying to get more black boys to read.
