LittleAfrica.com (http://www.LittleAfrica.com) expands the market for resources, products and services that cater to and empower African Americans. Founded in 1997, our business was inspired by the early 1900’s affluent, all-black community in North Tulsa, Oklahoma which was once commonly referred to as "Black Wall Street" or "Little Africa". Reportedly, this area of 15,000 had several successful black-owned businesses including financial institutions, law offices, medical practices, restaurants, and retail stores. Interestingly, a dollar changed hands 36 to 100 times before leaving the community. "Little Africa", which served as the home for several African American millionaires, was tragically bombed in 1921 – marking the beginning of the end to one of the most successful models for economically empowered black communities in U.S. history.
LittleAfrica.com’s mission is to create a NEW community that takes advantage of the incredible potential of the Internet to economically empower African Americans. The African American Resource section provides a list of those resources that can help propel us toward this mission.
