African-American Heritage Personal Checks
I am African-American and I have had a hard time finding personal checks that reflect my heritage. This is very unfortunate considering the fact that other cultures have had this all along. A friend of mine is Native-American and she has had no issue finding checks with Sacajawea or Pocahontas emblazoned on them. It would be very nice if there was a check that could let people know a bit about me and who I am as a person. I guess I should continue looking since there must be some out there somewhere.
The only thing that I am concerned about is the fact that African-American people are usually defined by a picture of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. While he is a very important figure in our history, there are many others that should be recognized as well. I know that there has to be someone out there who has the same feelings as me, and perhaps they have petitioned a company to offer these checks. So far, I have not found anything that fits my needs, but I am determined to keep looking so I do not have to walk around using generic looking checks.
