(SOUTHEAST DC – March 15, 2022) – Do come out and join us this Thursday at the Petey Greene UPO Center in Southeast Washington DC for Black Wall Street SOUTHEAST (UPO Petey Greene Community Service Center, 2907 Martin Luther King Junior Avenue, Southeast, Washington, DC, 20032). Doors open at 5 pm. Thanks to a wonderful decade of relationship-building between Beverly Smith of Momma’s Safe Haven and Doni Glover of Bmorenews.com, this is our 10th time around the sun together with this event and we are loving it!
In short, we celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. We aim to encourage entrepreneurship, beginning in the Black community, and help preserve little-known Black Wall Street History. This includes the history of Seneca Village in Manhattan in 1828 and Weeksville in Brooklyn, established in 1835.
In Washington, D.C., there was, of course, U Street!
Do pick up a copy of Doni Glover’s “I Am Black Wall Street”. Copies will be available.
CONGRATULATIONS to our 2022 Black Wall Street SOUTHEAST Honorees:
