Black Wall Street & Black Communities Destroyed By Racism

You've heard about Black Wall Street(1921) and maybe even Rosewood(1923), but how about the East St. Louis Massacre (1917), Knoxville, Tennessee Race Riots (1919), or  Bruces' Beach (1910's-1920's).

Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday June 4th at 9 pm EST as we discuss the the destruction of Black towns, communities, and businesses that have been attacked or destroyed due to jealousy, hatred, and racism. 

There can be no confusion America has no stomach for Black success. How else can you explain the wanton and reckless aggression directed at successful Melanated persons in this country? History actually records the fact that the prosperity of our people was the motivation for many of these acts of savagery. 

Let's take a look back and see what our forerunners achieved and try to learn from their mistakes. Because if we are going to do it again, we are going to have to do it better.
