What We Do
As early as the late 1800’s, there were small pockets of self-sufficient communities known as Black Wall Street. Named after America’s famed financial district, these areas had thriving economies that were founded and funded by the very people they served. Today, little remains of these communities beyond their resounding inspiration and quiet history. The possibilities were endless for this group that united around a common goal. This same notion that seeded these historic towns inspired the Black Wall Street Tour.
Studies show that culturally relevant pedagogy increases student achievement and cognition. An individual’s goals and future are refocused when one can see himself reflected in the framework of success. We reveal this framework by bringing young business owners from various industries to engage students through training and mentorship. Although the pathways to purpose and sustainability may vary, the principles that pave it are the same. Integrity, determination, vision, leadership, teamwork, and communication lay the foundation for every career.
The goal of the Black Wall Street Tour is to facilitate college and career readiness by exposing young people to the skills necessary to excel beyond the classroom. Each entrepreneur has a vested interest in the success of the coming generation. This commitment bridges the gap between the ambassadors of today and the leaders of tomorrow.
"Integrity, Determination, Vision, Leadership, Teamwork, and Communication lay the foundation for every career."
