This Black Wall Street Movement is about God, our ancestors and future generations.
Our founder and National President, Dr. Michael Carter, Sr. established Black Wall Street USA in 1998.
The mission is to establish Black Wall Street Districts around the globe in the Spirit of the original Black Wall Street District of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Black Wall Street Districts are urban areas comprised of thriving centers of businesses, community, and culture and include one or more commercial strips containing 50%-70% or more businesses owned by African Americans.
Our District Chairman and State Director, Derwin A Whitmore, MBA established Black Wall Street Nevada, in 2013.
The mission of Black Wall Street Nevada is to lead the economic empowerment movement for the state of Nevada, through education, community outreach, and the establishment of the Black Wall Street Nevada district.

The story of the original Black Wall Street Tulsa, OK, is so parallel to the story of the original Historic Westside, Las Vegas, NV, that one would be remiss not to tell this story. A once thriving, economic self-sufficient community, where African Americans lived, worked and recreated, like so many other Black communities became the victim of social and economic inequality. For the full story, see link below.
The Mission of Black Wall Street Nevada is to lead the Economic Empowerment Movement in the State of Nevada, through Education, Community Outreach, cooperative economics, and the establishment of the Black Wall Street Nevada district. To bring awareness to the events that destroyed the Original Black Wall Street, a thriving Black Tulsa Oklahoma Community ninety-two years ago.
The development of business activist who serve as the catalyst for the economic empowerment of the African American community. Currently, African Americans represent 14% of the US population but have an undeniable buying power of 1.3 trillion dollars and is projected to reach 1.54 trillion by 2022, driven by gains in population, income and education. African American consumers make up over 50% of overall spending.
Yet the dollar leaves the Black community after just Six (6) hours, compared to 17 days for Whites, 20 days for the Jewish community and 30 days in the Asian community. The median net worth of Whites is 265,000 compare to the 28,000 for Blacks. African Americans make every other ethnicity wealthy except themselves.
