ABOUT THE FILM

Black Wall Street: The Money, The Music & the People is a docu-short film which seeks to highlight the remarkable, yet forgotten story of the historic Negro neighborhood, Jackson Ward in Richmond, Virginia. Dubbed “the Black Wall Street” by economists of the early 20th Century because of its economic and financial prowess in a day and age when people of color were deemed incapable of being anything other than a waste of space, the “city within a city” was the epicenter of Negro life and entertainment boasting claim to such memorable and notable daughters and sons as Maggie L. Walker, the first Negro (black) woman to own a bank, and entertainer extraordinaire, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.
