How much do you know about Black Wall Street? The new HBO series Watchmen recently dramatized a signal event in American history: the 1921 attack on Greenwood Avenue, a.k.a. "Black Wall Street," a thriving African American community in Tulsa, OK, that was destroyed by white supremacist violence during a two-day riot. Learn about the connections between New York City's Wall Street and Black Wall Street and explore black entrepreneurship and wealth building with an expert panel.
Nerdy Thursdays are back! Join us for the signature event that brings together conversations, a DJ, cocktails, and a brilliant group of nerdy people.
