The date was June 1, 1921 when "Black Wall Street", the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-Black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious whites. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving Black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering--a model community destroyed and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused.The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community. Now a dollar leaves the Black community in 15-minutes.
As a fitting tribute to Black Wall Street Eric Hamilton, Co-Founcer of the Around The Way APP joins me here at Lette's Chat to discuss how his APP is a technological tribute to Black Wall Street and Black Businesses around the country. Please download the APP and more importantly, spend your important and powerful dollars at a Black-owned business. Around The Way was recently named tech startup of the week by Black Enterprise.
