HOLLYWOOD, California — April is Financial Literacy Month and Award-Winning Actor, Best-Selling Author and Former US Presidential appointee, Hill Harper announces the launch of The Black Wall Street (TBWS), as the first major step in closing the racial wealth gap in the United States. As the first Black- owned digital wallet and cryptocurrency exchange platform in the United States, Harper is positioned to build the world’s largest investment and financial literacy curriculum and toolkit for Black and Latinx communities across the diaspora.
May 2021, The Black Wall Street will embark on a monumental, 30-market financial literacy campaign and bus tour beginning in Los Angeles, California and culminating on Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the evening of May 31st, 2021 through June 1st during the very hours, 100 years ago when the mass destruction took place of what is still considered, the most successful Black economic community in the history of the United States. Importantly, the tour will visit thirty of the most disenfranchised communities in the US introducing financial literacy and cryptocurrency to individuals in these communities and gifting millions of Satoshis (fractile shares of Bitcoin). The Black Wall Street Bus Tour is the first of its kind, focusing on Bitcoin education and adoption within Black and Brown Communities.
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.
