  • Development of Black Wall Street
  • Gentrification is a housing, economic, and health issue that affects a community's history and culture and reduces social capital. It often shifts a neighborhood's characteristics (e.g., racial/ethnic composition and household income) by adding new stores and resources in previously run-down neighborhoods.
  • Most of the 35 acres that was once Black Wall Street is now owned by the City of Tulsa, Tulsa Development Authority and the University. Contracts to develop vacant land are largely being won by white developers. The only option in most of the area for black business owners is to lease property from white landlords.
