When Black Enterprise magazine was first published in 1970, the American economic landscape was in a period of transition that resulted from the U.S. Civil Rights Movement; the outlawing of de jure racial segregation created pathways to black mobility and the emergence of a black middle class. Created with the intent both to serve as a resource for budding and current black entrepreneurs and to highlight the achievements or even the mere existence of black entrepreneurship, Black Enterprise has continued to become a leading guide on issues facing black entrepreneurs and the people who are succeeding in spite of such challenges.
“In the March 2013 issue of Black Enterprise magazine, Earl “Butch”Graves Jr. announced the beginning of major changes for Black Enterprise, as part of their unflagging mission to be the most trusted source of information and inspiration for business, financial and career success. Since then, we have pursued an aggressive agenda of change and expansion, including our transformation from a 20th century magazine publisher to a 21st century, digitally focused, multimedia company.”
Since then Black Enterprise has moved aggressively into the digital space with virtual events, live conferences and awesome creative ways to connect with Black Entrepreneurs. They are truly an integral part of Black History.
We Empower Us.
