The Other Black Wall Street: Lessons of Hayti [EXCERPT]
The Laura Flanders show streams from www.grittv.org. Directly after the civil war, Hayti was once a thriving Black-majority town, economically self-sufficient with several Black businesses. However, with the rise of the KKK it was destroyed. Why has this history been forgotten? To uncover the missing links, and make the connections to Black America today, we host filmmaker Edward Harris Jr. and actor, comedian and narrator Doug E. Doug on GRITtv.
