Oh black wall street,Your memories live on

Through the streets of those who walked upon them,

You were destroyed by hatred and fiery rage,And people

See you while reading the daily page.

You built a community of excellence black entrepreneurs,

Oh black wall street,You’re more than four walls a roof and a floor
More than the stairs,And the people who live there,You bring the word

Beauty out of beautiful.

There’s so many amazing and successful black people all over the world 

doing good things for good causes and change! But you’ll always remain the same.

They destroyed something that you’ve worked so hard for.

Black Wall street is anxious for new entrepreneurs to move in. It has been years and years since the destruction of it.The house still holds many secrets itself.
