About Us

We are a digital financial literacy platform that provides credit, budgeting, savings and investing based solutions for stimulating local Black economies and communities

Our mission is to be an advocate for the promotion, growth, welfare & creation of African-American, HBCU student and alumni owned businesses, entrepreneurship & economics.

We want to create a paradigm shift amongst the HBCU community. Imagine if there were a place that promoted to them the importance of financial literacy, investing and entrepreneurship.

HBCU Wall Street was created by Jamerus Payton and Torrence Reed of NC.
