Baltimore Main St. & BmoreNews present Black Wall Street BALTIMORE, May 31st, NEXT PHAZE CAFE, 112 E. Lexington St.

101st commemoration of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street, May 31, 1921 

We celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race.

Baltimore Main Streets & have collaborated to commemorate the 101st commemoration of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street’s destruction. Although we are forever pained by the horrific onslaught that resulted in the decimation of 36-square blocks of Black-owned businesses in Tulsa’s Greenwood District, we are also fueled by their accomplishments. If the people could build something so magnanimous back then, imagine what we can build today!

Come out and join us as we honor those people who are making a difference for Black-owned businesses here in Baltimore!
