A Timeline Of African American Business



Over the years, African American business has grown to staggering heights. Black business owners have done their part to create a positive image for the black community and serve as role models for the younger black generation. As the number of successful black businessmen and businesswomen increases, the black community becomes stronger and increases their effort to educate the youth.

Since the 1800's, African Americans have been getting involved in the business community. Although it was difficult at first to break into this industry, others have acknowledged and given respect to the community over the years. It has become easier for African Americans to get involved with business, and now they are running many businesses, large and small.

In 1810, the African Insurance Company became the first insurance company that was black-owned. This was a major accomplishment for blacks in the United States, as it is now for so many immigrants who come here to enjoy all of the potential in this country. 

In 1888, the Savings Bank of the Grand Fountain United Order of the Reformers and the Capital Savings Bank of Washington D. C became the first two black-owned banks to open.

On August 23, 1900, Booker T. Washington founded the National Negro Business League in Boston. This was established as a means to promote involvement in African American business.

In 1907, a woman named Madam C. J Walker developed a new straightening method, which she used to build an extremely successful cosmetic firm.

In 1921, the Black Swan Phonograph Corporation was formed by Harry Pace. This record company was the first record company to be owned by blacks, and some of their artists included Bessie Smith and Mamie. A well known black-owned record company, Motown Records, was started by Berry Gordy Jr. In 1959.

In 1971, Johnson Products became the first African American busines that was listed on a a major stock exchanged. AMEX was the U. S stock company that listed this hair care business, which was located in Illinois.

On August 6, 1987 Reginald Lewis became the first African American CEO of a billion dollar company. He purchased an international chain called Beatrice Foods, which was later named TLC Beatrice International.

In 2001, Condoloeezza Rice became the first African American to be appointed Secretary of State or National Security Advisor. Seven years later, Senator Barack Obama became the first Black Man to be appointed President of the United States of America. He was sworn in on January 20, 2008 and became the 44th President of the U. S.

During recent years, African American business and politics have become stronger than ever, and it is steadily on the rise. More and more members of the community are becoming involved and aware. Senators, entrepreneurs, and leaders like President Barack Obama are all working to send a positive message back to their community.

African Americans are taking a role in the business world and proving that they can become successful entrepreneurs and business owners. Centuries ago, no one had imagined that African American business would grow to such staggering heights, but it has. It's stronger than ever, and it's getting stronger by the hour.
