Rebuild Greenwood: The Original Black Wall Street

This is the official Go Fund Me Page that supports the efforts of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce Inc. to preserve The Original Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Feel free to visit the Greenwood Chamber and see where your money and support is going. This is not a scam; this is a movement.  The goal is 1 million dollars to develop an education curriculum that teaches the history of Black Wall Street and financial literacy. 

Please review this website below and all pertinent Greenwood Chamber articles and news stories over the past three years. This is proof and evidence that we are doing the work, and we are glad to have your support. Thank you again.

We need your help! Freedom-loving people worldwide are raising money to benefit the Greenwood Community Development Corporation, and any donation will help make a difference.

BRIEF HISTORY OF GREENWOOD



The restoration, rehabilitation, stabilization, and preservation of the Historic Greenwood Commercial District, known as Historic Black Wall Street on Greenwood Avenue, Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a priority to freedom-loving people worldwide.

This fundraising campaign is about remembering how resilient our people are, especially during the Golden Age of Greenwood when blacks were determined to rebuild Greenwood in 1922 after the bloodiest race massacre in American history.  Below is proof of the infamous 1921 Race Massacre that can be witnessed by looking at the burnt bricks that remain from the 1921 Race Massacre on Greenwood.

Currently, we need two refrigerators for the Greenwood Conference room and Greenwood small banquet space. We also would like to add better lighting to the banquet space and purchase outdoor furniture for the courtyard and rooftop areas used by patrons, visitors, and business owners.




Greenwood as it was after the 1921 Race Massacre:

Greenwood must attain new roofs and resurface sidewalks and parking lots immediately.  See pictures below:





This is a call to unify the local, state, national, and global communities to come together for a day of racial healing and harmony. A day to invest love and wealth into the Historic Greenwood Commercial District known as the Original Black Wall Street buildings that still exist after the 1921 Race Riots/Massacre. The funding will restore the ten buildings on Historic Greenwood and host an international unity walk in May 2021. A small portion of the monies will support the Historic Greenwood Welcome Center and Guided Tours Program, Greenwood Small Business Incubator Program, Greenwood Upstart Funding Program for new businesses, and the Greenwood Leadership 2021 Program. We want to continue the successes of our ancestors from 1906 -1921 and decades after the race massacre.

Please refer to our website below for more information about the Greenwood Community Development Corporation. The Greenwood Community Development Corporation's primary mission is to restore the Original Black Wall Street Historic buildings on Greenwood Avenue and the Tulsa North community one business and one job at a time, empowering an under-served community through the provision of small business development training and services.
