Black Wall Street

May 27 @ 1:00 pm 7:00 pm

Bringing community and Black business owners together to create something beautiful.

Black Wall Street was a thriving African American business district in Tulsa, Oklahoma during the early 20th century. Despite facing discrimination and segregation, Black entrepreneurs and community leaders built a prosperous community that included banks, hotels, restaurants, and more.

However, in 1921, this success was tragically cut short when a white mob attacked Black Wall Street, resulting in the destruction of hundreds of businesses and homes and the loss of countless lives.

In commemoration of this history, our Black Wall Street event aims to celebrate the legacy of our vibrant communities and honor the resilience of the people who continue to build vibrant and thriving businesses and communities in spite of the barriers they face that attempt to impede those efforts.

Join us for a an event equally filled with celebration, reflection, and inspiration as we honor the legacy of Black Wall Street and work towards building a brighter future for Black Seattle.
