is supposed to be able to develop Black Wall Street Districts. It simply is NOT enough for groups like The Nielson Company and others to keep proclaiming our community with a new Trillion Dollar consumer spending power if its NOT connected to showing our Black communities HOW to do more for self with that economic power!
Now The WORK and COMMITMENT begins....
The National Black Wall Street Chicago
Rev. Willie T. Barrow Consumer Education and Consumer Action Project
reviving the grassroots consumer clubs started by Operation Breadbasket and with the spirit and example of the original Black Wall Street of Tulsa as we teach the principles of how a community uses its own consumer spending power to keep more slices of its own bread (money) channeled to its own community financial institutions to sustain and increase community owned businesses, jobs, and institutions. And to conduct direct action on major corporations who violate the moral authority of a community by attempting to exist and do business in the community and make profits without engaging financial partnerships with the existing businesses and service providers of those communities.
