What does it mean to build a Black Wall Street?

Hello, I hope you’re doing well.


As we prepare for the world premiere of our new film, “Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint,” by award-winning director Dorian Chandler, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about cooperative economics, Black wealth building and what it means to build a Black Wall Street.


For some, a Black Wall Street consists of a physical brick and mortar district in which Black businesses exist and commerce is taking place.  This is certainly an adequate definition, but a daunting one.  It would cost tens of millions of dollars to develop such a district, thus requiring the use of outside funding sources (the government, non-black investors, etc) that might leave such a district economically vulnerable.


Another version of a Black Wall Street might consist of simpler, more cost effective models: Digital communities where African Americans around the globe engage in regular ecommerce with one another, or even small Black Wall Streets that exist in our own families.


The general idea (which I discuss with my students in The Black Wealth Bootcamp) is based on what I call “Economic fortification.”  This is the abiity of African Americans to build, protect and provide for those they care about in cooperatively supportive environments.  These environments require the sharing of markets, customers, capital, etc, similar to a small village set up for runaway slaves to help each other find food, clothing and shelter.


In other words, people coming together with a common code of economic ethics and pooling resources can provide independently sustainable and financially-productive environments that will keep our kids from having to beg for jobs into adulthood.


In addition to these thoughts, which we’re going to discuss at the world premiere of our film this Saturday, I wanted to also remind you that we have just a couple more days on the 46% off sale on our Black Millionaires of Tomorrow wealth building program for children.


After completing this program, your child will know the following (among other things):


1) The difference between good and bad debt

2) The COST model of Cooperative Economics

3) The difference between a producer and a consumer

4) How to buy their first share of stock

5) Why it’s best to think like an investor

6) How the stock market works

7) The definition of an asset class

Much, much more.


The 3-in-1 package, which is on sale for 46% off the total value for this week only, has three courses, with three modules each, with each module having powerpoint slides and a self-study examination to ensure that your child has mastered all of the core concepts.



By the time your child completes the program, he/she will have a financial literacy level that exceeds the average college senior.   The course also comes with a 30-day, 100%, money-back guarantee if you are unsatisfied for any reason whatsoever.  So, there is absolutely no risk to you.

Until we meet again, please stay strong, be blessed and be educated.
