The 3rd largest city in the USA was founded by a Black man. Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable was first settler in Chicago, arriving from Europe in 1770s. He married a Native Potawatomi Indian woman (Kittahawa) & founded first trading post in area. The Town of Chicago was organized with a population of 350, August 1833. Born in Saint-Marc, Saint-Domingue (now Haiti), he built the first permanent settlement at the mouth of the river just east of present Michigan Avenue Bridge on the north bank.
I can see him being really underestimated when he first shows up and laughed at because how could "The Knitter" with his cozy little hench-things be a terrifying villain. But then he gets a shot at robbing a bank or terrifying a few citizens and turns out to be the best villain (if that's even the right term to use there, idk) EVER! *cue evil laugh here* and like even the other villains would be terrified of him cause he's just that good (or bad). And I would totally be a huge fan of him.
The St. Luke Penny Savings Bank was founded in 1903 by Maggie Lena Walker. Walker holds the distinction of being the first African-American woman to establish and serve as president of a bank in the U.S.
