Step Two

Recognizing a Black Wall Street District

Black Wall Street districts can be recognized as an urban area that is a thriving center of business, industry, and culture and is one commercial strip that has 70% or more businesses owned by African Americans. This will enable you to focus on what you are trying to do within your potential district. Consider the people to be involved. Make sure the group is balanced and no special interests dominate.

- Who are the major stakeholders involved in the project?

- Political leaders

- Business owners

- Community leaders

- Residents of the community

- Do they have sufficient knowledge of Black Wall Street and its purposes?

Consider the probable community response and is the political climate receptive to the Black Wall Street structure?
