The Incredable History!

O.W. Gurley was a prominent, yet little known, figure in Black History and American History, particularly for his role in establishing the thriving African American community of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma, during the early 20th century. Gurley, a successful entrepreneur and real estate developer, purchased land in Tulsa and created a segregated community where Black individuals could own businesses and homes without fear of racial discrimination. This area, known as Greenwood or "Black Wall Street," became a symbol of Black economic empowerment and cultural flourishing.

Gurley's visionary leadership and investment in Greenwood fostered a vibrant community that included flourishing businesses, schools, churches, and social organizations. However, Greenwood tragically fell victim to the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, one of the most devastating episodes of racial violence in American history. Despite this tragedy, Gurley's legacy endures as a testament to the resilience and contributions of Black Americans, highlighting the importance of economic autonomy and community solidarity in the face of systemic racism.

  • A Culture Vulture Free Zone

    Look, we're all for inclusion and the diverse celebration of Black History. However, it has become increasingly common for NON Black-owned companies to sell Black Culture while also falsely claiming to be Black-owned. This practice of cultural appropriation is not only dishonest but also disrespectful to the Black community. By profiting off of Black culture without actually supporting or empowering Black-owned businesses, these companies perpetuate systemic inequality and contribute to the erasure of Black voices and perspectives. It is important for consumers to do their research and support authentic Black-owned businesses that prioritize social justice, equity, and circulation of the Black dollar; rather than those that simply capitalize on the latest cultural trends.
