Now The WORK and COMMITMENT begins....
The Black Wall Street Chicago
Rev. Willie T. Barrow Consumer Education and Consumer Action Project
reviving the grassroots consumer clubs started as an aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and The SCLC Operation Breadbasket and with the spirit and example of the original Black Wall Street of Tulsa as we teach the principles of how a community uses its own consumer spending power to keep more slices of its own bread (money) channeled to its own community financial institutions to sustain and increase community owned businesses, jobs, and institutions. And to conduct direct action on major corporations who violate the moral authority of a community by attempting to exist and do business in the community and make profits without engaging financial partnerships with the existing businesses and service providers of those communities.
"The Little Warrior"
