The years 1865-1965 represented a time of growth for black businesses in Fort Worth. The corner of Ninth and Jones Streets became the entryway to a very vibrant new business district during the 1920s. The vision for the district was simple, to create something for black people by black people. It was a community of great pride and strength.
