Black Wall Street Times launches campaign to expand newsroom

Black Wall Street Times

The Black Wall Street Times commemorative magazine will feature 100 years of resilience. This unique project will include a history of the Greenwood community – destroyed in 1921 but rebuilt in the years that followed. We will also highlight the second destruction caused by gentrification. We will not only commemorate the destruction of families and livelihoods in the Greenwood District but will also celebrate the resilience of Black families and entrepreneurs who are steadily reclaiming space in this city. Notably, we look forward to highlighting members of the community who are making positive impacts today. Our publication, rooted in activism, is best positioned to highlight the racial inequities that our community continues to face today. We hit the ground running at the start of 2021, and we’re excited to bring you ‘Greenwood 100’ in time for the centennial year.
