Black Wall Street HD: Small biz spotlight

Published on

VICTORVILLE — Mother’s Day gift baskets, hand crafted candles and canvas paintings were on display at the Black Wall Street Market, last Saturday, in the parking lot of the Burning Bush church. Smooth sounds from We Jam Productions lured onlookers into the market for an afternoon of fun-filled shopping.

“We feel it’s important to our community right now with a lot that’s going on in the nation — things that have transpired, in our community…,” said Black Wall Street Market Vendor Manger Star Allen. “That’s why Black Wall Street is important.

We feel it’s important to build that for ourselves and to support each other.

Allen along with Lynn Mitchell, Danielle Mitchell and Letitia Alexander started holding the market place in December, however, the idea was initially a Facebook page.

“Lynn wanted to create something up here for people to have something to show their business, get more business and also bring something to the High Desert,” said Danielle Mitchell.  “We go down the hill for everything, we’re trying to bring something up here.”

Several kid vendor booths were at the market selling lemonade, dill pickles and snacks.

The Black Wall Street Market takes place the 2nd Saturday of the month from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. during the Spring and Summer. During the Fall and Winter months, the market takes place from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. There is a $1 entry fee. The market is located at 14849 7th Ave, Victorville, CA 92395.
