For Global Entrepreneurship Month, Black History Studies presents the West London Premiere screening of ‘Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint ‘ on Thursday 21st November 2019 @ Lexi Cinema.
Before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, he had begun to explore the deep impact that economic inequality had on his ability to affect social change. Dr. King found that, if we do not address financial wrongs of the past, we will not be able to fulfil the dream that many of us share today.
Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint examines Little Africa of Tulsa Oklahoma in 1922 as a shining example of what Black people can accomplish when we pursue our economic goals as a collective. Featuring leading financial scholars, historians and activists, the film allows us to study the body of knowledge gained in order to move on to a more empowered future. Principles of cooperative economics, wealth building, and Black business development are addressed, along with the truth about what happened to the people who had their wealth stolen and their story buried for over 100 years.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on Financial Education and Entrepreneurship.
