Event description

Description

We believe in cooperative economics. In many instances, the under-served communities throughout the United States lack certain businesses and services that are normally found in the more affluent areas of cities. Since this is the case, we believe that there is a need for businesses to work together and share resources much like the African Nations and civilizations did prior to slavery. In following this tradition, we would hope to build up our businesses and network.

We are carrying the torch of Black Wall Street in Tulsa, OK. In the early 1900s in the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa was one of the wealthiest Black communities in the 20th century. The area was thriving with 600 Black businesses, its own bank and hospital, 20+ restaurants and more. We hope to establish a community in the southern sector of DFW that experiences economic growth and stability for all businesses.

The movement being biblically sound. In biblical days everything took place around the Temple. The Temple was essentially the center of community life. We are trying to recreate that in the 21st century. In doing this we must recognize that Jesus didn’t turn the tables over because they were selling but because of the unjust practices with selling (ex. payday loan, items with interests, etc.).
