The New Black Wall Street Market development was inspired by the original Black Wall Street, located in Tulsa, OK, that was unfortunately a target of racial discrimination on May 31, 1921. The New Black Wall Street Market hosts a space that allows entrepreneurs to expand their businesses, especially minority executives. The purpose of the market is to cultivate relationships with business owners in the Atlanta area, provide entrepreneurial training to enhance skills, offer a community for small businesses, and assist with the transition of online stores to brick-and-mortar.

According to the Project Coordinator, Matthew Hampton, there are currently 118-130 spaces available in the market. “Those spaces lend themselves to possibly help 300-400 entrepreneurs. It gives greater impact and greater opportunity.” Following the footsteps of the owner of Village Market in Ponce City Market, the AEI believes that the model they have envisioned will assist in the efficiency and success of the New Black Wall Street Market.
