QUEst for Blackness

Black dollars anyone? I’m going to make it rain! Who am I?

QUEst #3: I was the richest African American man in the 1980’s.
Can you taste the Blackness I’m processing? Who am I?

QUEst #4: It’s between me and another person as to who opened the oldest black-owned cemetery in the United States making burial plots available to Black people. I also organized a bank that closed during the depression, but not a single depositor lost money.
Resting in peaceful Blackness, who am I?
