Historic Black Wallstreet Directory

Urban Coders Guild exists to provide STEM education opportunities and training, while removing many of the obstacles to access including lack of technology learning resources (hardware, high-speed internet, quality instructors, etc.), lack of transportation to classes sessions and other educational opportunities, and childhood hunger. Urban Coders Guild exists to help educate parents, especially those of Black and Brown children and those of young girls, about the opportunities STEM and computer science education can offer their children. And Urban Coders recognizes the need to provide multiple pathways for students – academic, professional, and entrepreneurial. All students will be exposed to coding technologies, but in developing a viable tech ecosystem, we recognize the need to showcase other roles within the tech sphere: IT project managers and business analysts, product designers, product developers, tech salespeople, as well as future tech entrepreneurs.
The Historic Black Wall Street Directory is a collection of web pages and an accompanying mobile app for the businesses lost in the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. This one of a kind product honors Black Wall Street by creating a through line from past to the present and imagining those businesses as vibrant, thriving enterprises in the present Internet Age.
Urban Coders Guild middle and high school students spent a year learning web and mobile app development skills, and used those newly acquired skills to create the Historic Black Wall Street Directory as their capstone project. Future students will work to complete the directory as they too learn web and mobile app development skills. In this way, the directory will grow and evolve as a learning resource both for Urban Coders Guild students and anyone interested in the history of Greenwood.
