Black Wallstreet 2.0

The original Black Wall Street may be no more but in this generation we are seeing a great shift and a “new” black wall street being developed.

  • According to the U.S. Census Bureau, In 2019, there were 134,567 Black-owned employer businesses, up 8% from 2018.
  • These businesses weren’t twiddling their thumbs–they had $133.7 billion in annual receipts, 1.3 million employees and about $40.5 billion in annual payroll. Yep. As Black and as magical as it gets.
  • Black women currently account for 2.7 million business owners nationwide

These numbers show we’re taking ownership, taking up more space, and hopefully that will translate to building more wealth.
