Black Wall Street. The historic area in Tulsa, Oklahoma where people of African descent had their own stores, banks, insurance companies, restaurants and more. The area thrived in it's day until racism, jealousy, and plain old hatred led to the infamous burning down of the entire area. But this area of Tulsa wasn't the only place where Blacks thrived economically. In Durham, N.C., Richmond,Va. and other places Blacks more than held their own economically. What happened? Join me, Gregory Taylor, your host on The Community On Our History and Heritage, Tuesday, April 11, as we explore the tragedy of Black Wall Street and look to give solutions to the economic woes facing us today. It's time we resurrected " Black Wall Street". EVERYWHERE!!
