Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint (2016)
by Dorien Chandler, Dr. Boyce Watkins and Shauntay Hampton-Prewitt
Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint Before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered by the government, he'd 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 fulfill 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 left behind by our ancestors 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.
