There have been 3 Black Wall Streets:

  1. The Black Wall Street of Greenwood, Tulsa

  2. The Jackson Ward Black Wall Street

  3. The Black Wall Street of Durham, North Carolina.

These were the most successful African-American business districts.

The most famous and successful Black Wall Street was that of Tulsa, OK in the early 1920's before it was burned down in the Tulsa "Race Riot." This black wall street is the subject of the #RememberBlackWallStreet movement.

These Black Wall Streets can be said to challenge the notion that African-Americans cannot build successful cities.
