NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Carver Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: CARV), the holding company for Carver Federal Savings Bank ("Carver"), announced today that in recognition of Black History Month, its executives will ring The Nasdaq Stock Market Closing Bell in Times Square on Monday, February 6, 2017 at 4:00 pm ET.
"As the first African-American managed bank to be listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market, it is befitting for Carver to ring the Closing Bell on the first Monday of Black History Month," remarked Carver's President and CEO Michael T. Pugh.
"Our institution is named after the famous African-American inventor George Washington Carver, who once said: 'Where there is no vision. There is no hope.' Carver first opened its doors in Harlem in 1948 at a time when mainstream banking options were not readily available to persons of color. Since then, we have grown to become the largest African- and Caribbean-American managed bank in the U.S., with a demonstrated track record of promoting economic development and the revitalization of underserved communities.
"On this occasion we are proud to honor not only our namesake and our own institutional heritage, but also the contributions of countless others who have shared our vision for a more unified and prosperous American society," concluded Mr. Pugh.
