Spoken word aligned with beautiful visuals sets the stage for a short film honoring Black Wall Street.

This short film, produced by Therese Cooper and Jairus Burks of Jairus Burks Productions, features spoken word poet Dacember Traylor passionately explaining the significance behind one of the most prominent concentrations of African American businesses in the United States and how it was forcefully erased in one of the most devastating massacres in the history of U.S. race relations.

Dancer Camille Hagen (Miss Black Oklahoma 2017) provides a visual representation of the hurt and the pain African Americans feel today as “Black Wall Street” still has not been reclaimed.
