                         The Experience of a ‘Black Shopping Mall’

Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Rosewood in Levy County, Florida were two of the
most successful and wealthiest African American communities in the United States during
the early 20th Century. Ironically, these two communities shared the same fate –
decimation by race riots, the two worst in the nation’s history, i.e., The Tulsa Race Riot of
1921 and the Rosewood Massacre of 1923.

Popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street”, Greenwood boasted a variety of
successful businesses, as African Americans (because of segregation), were forced to spend
their dollars at their own shops; stimulating their own economy 26 times before the dollars
went elsewhere.

Rosewood, a quiet, primarily black, self-sufficient town, handled the transportation of
cedar wood and other commodities for the Railroad. But the violent, racially motivated
conflict put an end to its existence. The black residents abandoned the town never to return.

The Greenwood-Rosewood Project is attempting to recreate the prosperity experienced by
those two communities by encouraging the 1.4 million African Americans living in New
Jersey, to support African-American owned businesses in the State and elsewhere.
Therefore, the NAACP is asking each of you to patronize at least 12 businesses and bring
proof to our Kwanzaa Celebration on December 8 th, 2011. Your names will be entered into
our raffle drawings at the celebration.

Remember: Buy and bank where Blacks benefit as owners or employees; support
selective patronage efforts that contribute to the wealth and development of Black
people.
