Boss: The Black Experience in Business
By Stanley Nelson. A Firelight Films production for THIRTEEN Productions LLC, in association with The HistoryMakers.
The history of business and entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the American story, but often absent from that narrative are the experiences of African Americans. From the country’s earliest days, African Americans have embodied the qualities of innovation, risk-taking and determination to forge a path toward a better life. BOSS: The Black Experience in Business traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs over 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of million-dollar empires.
