Business in the Black premier

When: Wed., May 31, 6 p.m. 2017

This 80-minute film produced by Anthony Brogdon traverses the rise of black-owned businesses in America from the 1800s through the 1960s. Broken down into three sections — how do slaves go to college, what racists did to destroy black business districts, and how black-owned businesses help foster the business community, organizations, and more. After its premiere, the film will be shown at the Detroit Historical Museum before leaving to be screened in Harlem on June 5 and 6, and in Los Angeles from June 20 to the 24.
