The Black Wall Street Times is committed to educating its readers and the public on seeds that lead to injustice. We, therefore, stand with all marginalized communities as many of them have stood with us through the Civil Rights era and beyond. We vow to speak against all evils even when it comes from people who look like us. We stand by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
