Black Businesses in Montgomery

Video Overview
During the first quarter of the 20th century, a group of men and women in Montgomery, Alabama embraced Booker T. Washington’s ideology of business development and sought to create new economic opportunities for African Americans. Black newspaper editors, businesspersons, medical professionals, insurance interests, and elements among the religious leadership promoted cooperation between the various segments within the black community. Together they emphasized self-help, entrepreneurialism, frugality, and racial pride as they worked to build better lives and a better community within Montgomery’s hostile Jim Crow environment.
