PROGRAMME: MORE FILMS TO ADD
Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint
Before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered by the government, he'd begun to explore the deep impact that economic inequality had on his ability to affect social change. Dr. King found that, if we do not address financial wrongs of the past, we will not be able to fulfill the dream that many of us share today.
"Resurrecting Black Wall Street: The Blueprint" examines Little Africa of Tulsa Oklahoma in 1922 as a shining example of what black people can accomplish when we pursue our economic goals as a collective.
Featuring leading financial scholars, historians and activists, the film allows us to study the body of knowledge left behind by our ancestors in order to move on to a more empowered future.
Principles of cooperative economics, wealth building, and black business development are addressed, along with the TRUTH about what happened to the people who had their wealth stolen and their story buried for over 100 years.
‘How to Win the Money Game' by Daryl Harper
Money and Finance is a subject that many people are either never taught in school, they don't understand or, more often than not, they shy away from. This lack of knowledge and financial illiteracy has left many people struggling to get out of the rat race- the monotony of just surviving and living from pay cheque to pay cheque. This is your opportunity to learn some simple steps that can impact and change your life dramatically.
It's time to learn how to win the money game, protect your family, get your money to work as hard for you as you work for it, accelerate your mortgage, pay consumer debts off faster, save, make and get better value for your money and position yourself for a comfortable retirement.
