Spotlight on You

Kala Gibson, executive vice president and head of business banking at Fifth Third Bank, recently penned an editorial titled "The Intersection of Rage, Fear, and Hope" in the Cincinnati Enquirer. In the editorial, Gibson addresses the emotions often associated not only within a Black Lives Matter movement, but also as a black man and the father of two young black men. "My heart is heavy, and I’m deeply saddened over the recent events, but I continue to have hope and faith in our country," stated Gibson. "I believe this is our defining moment. This is the moment we say enough is enough. This is the moment we stand against injustice and inequality."
