This show will discuss the effects segregation had on black businesses, families, and black unity in the 50’s and 60’s. Was segregation better for blacks? Would segregation be beneficial for blacks today?
“It resumed being a vital black community until segregation was overturned by the Federal Government during the 1950s and 60s. Desegregation encouraged blacks to live and shop elsewhere in the city, causing Greenwood to lose much of its original vitality. Since then, city leaders have attempted to encourage other economic development activity nearby.”
“Not only did African Americans want to contribute to the success of their own shops, but also the racial segregation laws prevented them from shopping anywhere other than Greenwood”

Black people make up the second largest population in America, are one of the largest consumers, but generate less business income than other races.
Have you ever wondered why black people are digressing? Think about the time BEFORE desegregation, black people had more businesses within their communities than we do today! There were many more black families with a man in the home.
What has happened?

We were once able to work collectively and become very prosperous in a segregated society. Today's media fill the headlines with dogma! Blacks are unable to get along and work together. I'd rather take my business to anyone else except a black person. Negroes always want something for nothing. We have bought into the lies, deception, deceit, and injuries from the desegregation civil rights movement of the 60's. We are restoring our path and repairing the bridges that once connected us as a great people! The time id here! The time is now! Join us tonite as we promote Black Businesses and educate uniting Group Economics. This, is Black Wall Street...
Images of the Civil Rights era are rife with pictures of marching crowds intent on achieving integration in schools. The goal was to expose black children to the smae level of education as whites were enjoying. Fifty year after segreagtion and now that we have integrated where are we? What progress have we made? Are EAA the dream the civil rights fighters had envisioned. Broken schools, empty palygrounds,poor grades begs the question integration versus segreagtion.

Join The Gist of Freedom live on location, UNESCO Cnference with attorney Harvey Herman, as we discuss attorney Activist, Virgil D. Hawkins and visit his monument in Florida.
In 1949, Civil Rights Activist, Attorney Virgil D. Hawkins, as a student applied to the University of Florida (UF) law school but was denied entry because of his race. He was urged to attend law school outside Florida but refused and sued the state, which responded by establishing a law school at FAMU. While he was admitted to FAMU’s law school, Hawkins continued his fight for acceptance at the University of Florida. Although he was unsuccessful, Hawkins’ long-fought battle led to the ultimate desegregation of the University of Florida. Hawkins received his law degree from the New England College of Law more than 20 years after applying to UF. The FAMU College of Law was founded in 1949 on the main campus in Tallahassee. After graduating 57 lawyers, the law school was closed by the state of Florida in 1968. The Florida Legislature voted to reopen the law school in 2000 and Orlando was selected as the location. The reestablished FAMU College of Law opened its doors in 2002 and is now housed in a state-of-the-art facility in downtown Orlando’s Parramore neighborhood.
Thomas Cirignano owned and operated an auto repair shop on East Third Street in the heart of South Boston. He’ll share how he experienced, first hand, the history making years when crime and violence ruled the streets. It was the time of court ordered desegregation of Boston's schools, via Forced Busing. It was also the time of Mobster Whitey Bulger’s reign of terror. Then there was the oil embargo imposed by OPEC. The resulting gasoline shortages of the 1970's added a viol
With violence, poverty and drug use plaguing the black community we are always trying to figure out how to better our community. My friend Ebbonie posted a Facebook status that sparked my interest and got my mind clicking. "If desegregation never happened, would the black community be better or worse off than it is today?" Call in this Tuesday and comment on this topic. 760.23.4647 What do you think...could a segregated black community really improve our community? Watch
