About the event
The purpose of this exhibit is to create the very first Digital Civil Rights Business and Cultural
Heritage Trail Exhibits at the International Black Business Museum. Our goal is to identify
entrepreneurs and their historic business and cultural sites that are significant in chronicling the
history and culture of Black-owned businesses in the United States during their struggle for civil
rights, political freedoms, and economic rights in the 1950s and 1960s.
We will examine the relationships that were forged between black entrepreneurs/inventors with
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights activists during the Civil Rights Era. We
examine the various ways in which they supported the Civil Rights Movement.
