Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

This weekend we will also commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre when mobs of white Tulsa residents burned, rioted and murdered the Black Business District in 1921. To commemorate the celebration of entrepreneurial, we’ve adopted the moniker “Black Wall Street Still Lives”.
