This Memorial Day 2021 May 31st marks the 100th year since the bombing and terrorist attacks to destroy Black Wall Street in Tulsa, OK in 1921.
In the 100 years since many other tactics have been used to destroy thriving Black business districts and communities across the country including redlining, highways, Urban Renewal (negro removal), concentration of drugs and crime, mass incarceration and more.
This Memorial Day we will lift up the legacies of those who built Black Wall Streets by filling our streets with Black businesses and celebrating our entrepreneurs of today and our work to build Africatown.
Our fearless entrepreneurs of today are the living memorial and tribute to all the Black entrepreneurs that made it happen from Tulsa to Rosewood, Fl to Durham Little Hayti, to Harlem to Black Bottom Detroit to Bronzevilles to the Hill District in Pittsburgh to Oakland to the Central District and everywhere Black pioneers and trailblazers made a dollar out of fifteen cents.
This a celebration of our resilience and this is a statement of our resistance to any future that doesn’t include us thriving. Because we refuse to die, still we rise!
Join us this Monday in saying no to Jim Crow Apatheid in the Central District, Seattle, Martin Luther King Jr County, George Washington Bush state and yes to thriving Black community!
