People in Tulsa Were Leading in Luxury Possessions

In a time when the entire state of Oklahoma had only two airports, six Black families owned their own planes. The average income for a Black family was well over what minimum wage is today. Dr. Simon Berry, who owned the bus system in Tulsa, recalls that in 1910 his average income was around $500 a day, according to reports from sfbayview.com.

The Creation of Black Wall Street Was Intentional

In 1906, O.W. Gurley, a wealthy African-American from Arkansas, moved to Tulsa and purchased over 40 acres of land that he made sure was only sold to other African-Americans. Gurley also used the area to give refuge to African-Americans running from the harsh oppression of Mississippi.

Great Move. Will help build a stronger and more tight knit Black community.

Strategy wise this is like something out of the Asian playbook...one of the most tight knit races in the world. In many cities where there are large Asian populations you will see the same concept. Asian specific malls and shopping centers.

Just don't let come and buy you out
