MONEY IS NOT THE ONLY ANSWER, BUT IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
ELEVATE INFLUENCER 2021
The Greenwood District in Tulsa, OK – better known as Black Wall Street – the segregated community that was originally built out of necessity but thrived, has a legacy in American history that has not been fully explored.
From its creation to its ultimate destruction due to the Tulsa Race Riots where the community was bombed by the American government, the true toll of its devastation is still being explored today.
What Black Wall Street has become is a rallying cry and launchpad for black Americans to build their wealth and thrive once again.
From Burning to Blueprint: Rebuilding Black Wall Street After a Century of Silence
From Burning to Blueprint is the upcoming book by Kevin L. Matthews II. It tells the story of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre in the era of the Black Lives Matter movement and social activism. As the title suggests, it is more than a historical account of what happened a century ago, this book provides a path for Black families to rebuild Black Wall Street in the 21st century.
This book builds on decades of research into Tulsa’s Race Massacre and weaves the past and the present together to reveal how the formula used to spark one of the worst race massacres in American history, is still being used today.
