Remember the Freedmen Bank?
We’re the Freedmen and That Was Our Money!
After the Civil War, the enslaved and freed blacks were reclassified as Freedmen, American Freedmen. American Freedmen were fantastic business owners, and our towns were highly profitable. Freedmen had lots of towns, shops, and businesses. American Freedmen had multiple Black Wall Streets! Not just Tulsa.
“Pretty much goes to Hispanics and immigrants.”
