When we think of Black Wall Street, we’re immediately pointed in the direction of Tulsa Oklahoma.  And while Tulsa was a great example of a Black Wall Street, contrary to what we’ve been told, there were tens if not hundreds of Black Wall Streets across America.  From Wilmington, NC to Rosewood, FL Chicago, to Galveston, TX to San Francisco, there were plenty of cities where Negroes flourished economically before and even after Jim Crow.  And as white supremacy demands, each one of those cities was systematically dismantled, either through violent riots or gentrification.  Historians have sought to minimize the impact of Black Wall Streets, but some of us know better.  Join me and co-host Niecy Lashelle as we discuss in-depth.  563-999-3442 is the call-in number to the show.  Press 1 to join the conversation.  Tune in and let’s dialogue!
