“Our technology seeks to replicate the brick-and-mortar Black Wall Street, as a digital ecosystem that will galvanize the financially excluded and directly stimulate the economic growth and spending in marginalized communities everywhere.”
“To address an ecosystem of problems, a tech-based ecosystem of solutions is required. We are – and always have been – our own empowerment ecosystem. We’re now creating the digitized and scalable version of the original Black Wall Street. This has always been for us and by us – it’s time to reclaim that space. Just like anything it starts with education. Our measurement of impact is improved financial literacy in Black communities.” – Najah Roberts
The Black Wall Street’s National Centennial Charitable Tour
May 31, 2021, marks the centennial of The Tulsa race-riot & massacre. The destruction took place from sun-fall on May 31st through June 1st, 1921. It has been called the single worst act of racial violence in American history.
The Black Wall Street’s campaign, Crypto-curriculum, and DigitalWallet will be led by Harper in partnership with Najah Roberts, a world-leading cryptocurrency exchange expert. Together they will initiate “The Digital Financial Revolution” National Charitable Bus Tour, an informational and empowerment-first initiative intended to honor the victims of the Tulsa Massacre by reclaiming and transforming this namesake into a momentous strive for racial and economic equality. The tour will host virtual and COVID-safe events outside in 33 of the most densely populated and economically challenged communities across the US with the goal to educate about The Black Wall Street App & DigitalWallet – A movement to put their futures back into their own hands. Appointed by the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce as the Honorary National Co-Chair of The Redevelopment of Black Wall Street, Hill Harper’s vision for The Black Wall Street DigitalWallet is deeply rooted in his commitment to addressing the digital divide and economically uplifting underserved communities by providing them with the tools and playbook to thrive – in the palms of their hands.
The Black Wall Street – Black Cash Matters™
“With the Black Wall Street technology, we seek to make obsolete payday lenders and other financial predators plaguing our communities, while simultaneously creating cross-generational wealth transfer, for people who have historically been taught to work for our wages instead of making our wages work for us…because Black Cash Matters.” – Hill Harper
The Black Wall Street is home to The Black Wall Street DigitalWallet, the first of its kind, connecting “top-of-the-funnel” financial services with the populations these instruments were designed to service — everyone from the disadvantaged “unbanked and under banked” to the savvy cost-efficient consumer.
Unlike traditional financial institutions, The Black Wall Street’s sole purpose is to provide Black and Brown communities the opportunity to be involved in the transfer of wealth with cryptocurrency and decentralized finance.
