Mark S. Allen recently included in the 2012 Edition of Who's Who In Black Chicago as "one of Chicago's Most Influential Voices In The Black Community
On this 44th year anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, I am proud and humbled to announce as Chairman of Black Wall Street Chicago and its new organizational offices are located in the very building at 4655 South King Drive where Rev. Dr. King's Chicago offices were once located, so today "from generation to generation" Black Wall Street Chicago is proud to have worked directly with and mentored by so many of Dr. King's former national staff members and his close associates, and to be carrying on the King Legacy of his Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) Operation Breadbasket program in our Black Wall Street Spirit by educating our community on how to use our own consumer spending power to rebuild and sustain our own communities backed the economic public policies.
44 years later - Is The "DREAM" a "NIGHTMARE?
44 years later Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr would be SAD in that he left us with a very specific agenda that IF IF IF WE WE WE just FOLLOWED then our communities would NO be in the condition they are in. Rev. Dr. King's program was a community economic program where he told Black and poor people to stop supporting major corporations in our communities that did not have financial benefits agreements with the community based organizations, businesses and service providers, AND Rev. Dr. King said to Black and poor people to start investing more of the consumer spending dollars within their own community financial institutions to sustain and increase our own community businesses and jobs as well as local public policy and 44 years later Rev. Dr. King's core constituency has not done that and we are suffering because of it.
