NATIONAL BLACK WALL STREET LEADERS APPLAUD REV. JESSE L. JACKSON, SR  ON HIS VISIT TO TULSA, OKLAHOMA TODAY FOR FUNERAL OF RECENT RACIAL SHOOTING VICTIM BOBBY CLARK AND SITE OF ORIGINAL RACE RIOTS OF MAY 31, 1921, 91ST YEAR ANNIVERSARY
Tulsa, Okla. — 

Today, National Black Wall Street USA National leadership which include Mark Allen, a former  national aide to the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr, applaud the Rev. Jesse Jackson who was at Crown Hill Chapel in Tulsa yesterday morning for the funeral of 54-year-old Bobby Clark, one of three people killed in the Good Friday shootings.

"We must somehow pull leadership together, black and white alike, and say that this killing does not represent all of Tulsa," Jackson said.  The Rev. Michael Carter, Sr, National Chairman of National Black Wall Street USA stated that he agrees with Rev. Jackson.  Carter stated that  "91 years ago, not all White citizens were a part of the burning and shooting down of the Black Wall Street community of Tulsa that lost over 3,000 Black citizens and a community with over 600 Black owned and operated businesses, and that today 91 years later the accused shooters in this latest tragedy Jake England and Alvin Watts who are white do not represent all Whites in Tulsa, but the challenge is to show that 91 years later that original self community economic spirit of Black Wall Street
 can live again in Tulsa and Black and communities across the country without threat of any racial hatred"

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett was also on hand outside the chapel and talked with Jackson before they went inside for the service.

Jackson is just one high-profile civil rights leader making a visit to Tulsa following the shootings, which many believe were racially-motivated.

 
Mark Allen stated that "it is fitting that Rev. Jackson today would be the one to help bring additional national visibility to this Tulsa community during this challenging period as one who is well aware of the history that Black Wall Street of Tulsa represent yesterday and today. It was Rev. Jesse who helped get the national message out across the country that the spirit  and legacy of the original Black Wall Street of Tulsa was alive and mobilized through 35 national chapters of the National Black Wall Street organization when he accepted my invitation to be the kick off speaker at the very first national meeting last year in Chicago of National Black Wall Street Chapter Organizers, along with other former national staff members of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's national staff of SCLC Operation Breadbasket Program like Attorney Thomas Todd and the Rev. Albert Sampson. Rev. Jackson and others reflected that the Operation Breadbasket program was in the spirit of Black Wall Street in that it taught how the Black and other poor communities could be strong communities built through the consumer education of poor citizens in their own communities investing more of their consumer spending with that communities own financial institutions to sustain and increase its own community businesses, jobs, and institutions" 
 
Allen also stated that he hopes that national high profile leaders like Rev. Jackson can help use this focus again on the pain of Tulsa into how the power of Tulsa and that Black Wall Spirit example could actually rebuild and reverse the desperate economic conditions that Black and poor communities face while on the other hand touting the Trillion dollar consumer spending power from the Black community alone. "Tulsa last year almost lost the financing to sustain the only facility to survive the 1921 Race Riots, and we have far more economic resources today than we did 91 years ago, so we need to have collaborations to sustain that Library and self empowered communities and I cannot think of a better campaign to work with Rev. Jackson and other national leadership on than reviving the spirit and legacy of Black Wall Street of this same community that the world watched in 1921 and now in 2012." said Allen.
