Black Wall Street: The Spirit of Community By Laquitta Barnes
It is the year 1921 and, at the corner of Greenwood and Archer, lies Black Wall Street. Over 300 businesses can be found here, and they are all supported heavily by the residents of this thriving community.
It is a time of racial segregation in America and one significant encounter causes a spark to become a flame. Black Wall Street: The Spirit of Community uncovers the beauty of the Black-owned businesses and residential hub located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This book tells how a community rebounded from a tragic event, and restored the legacy of entrepreneurship, success and the importance of community. These events went on to affect the whole country, and impacted the growth of many other communities.
