You’re invited to join us at the 4th Annual Black Wall Street Festival taking place on Saturday June 29, 2019 at the former site of the Wellston Loop Building, intersections of Dr. Martin Luther King Dr & Hodiamont Ave. We seek to empower, challenge and educate the communities comprising of the Wellston Loop on cooperative economics. This festival is the launching pad for entrepreneurship in the area.
According to statistics of the Department of Streets and Sewers of St. Louis, in the 1950s, the intersection of Easton and Hodiamont Avenues “is comparable to some of St. Louis’ busiest intersections. During a 12-hour period, a count showed 11,500 automobiles passing through the intersection as compared to 13,500 at Grand and Olive.”
