Can anyone locally and nationally interview with Tori Tyson, one of the last surviving Black business owners on Greenwood Ave, 918 - 576 6200
BREAKING NEWS -- THIS JUST IN -- My statement to THE BLACK WALL STREET TIMES Media in Tulsa. As Chairman Of Nation Black Wall Street Chicago and a National Representative of Black Wall Street USA, I would like to think that money should be directed for helping create, sustain and increase Black owned business on the historic original Black Wall Street Of Tulsa. What I am hearing now is that by the 100th Year Centennial OR SOONER that there will be NO Black owned businesses on sustaining few blocks on the original Black Wall Street Of Tulsa. I am reading various social media posts where current remaining Black businesses on Greenwood are being forced out of their businesses with higher rents than they can afford, and I recently saw on line where the roof and other repairs are being ignored long enough by landlords they they too will no longer be able to sustain their businesses. What a way to celebrate the upcoming 98th Year commemoration. More should be done to expose what is happening to the current Black businesses on Greenwood and what can done to sustain and grow them. If not then we are headed into celebrating a 100th Year Centennial where NO BLACK OWNED businesses even exist on the original Black Wall Street Of Tulsa.
Millions of dollars should be spent showing how a Black business community was supported to return and grow on where the ancestors were surviving before being attacked and massacred on those historic and sacred blocks of Greenwood. AND Maybe during the 100th Year Centennial these funds can also help study JUST HOW MUCH would Black owned blocks and business on Greenwood be economically worth had they not been burned down 100 years go? HOW to you celebrate REPAIRING the economic damage? Other that that, The 100th Year Centennial will be an economic tourism boom for Whites that was once a Black owned business community that was never economically restored to The Black community. Thanks for HEARING MY VOICE! God bless
