Beating the Odds: Successful African American Entrepreneurs in Columbia, Missouri

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In Columbia, Missouri the African American business community has diminished severely over the last century. A thriving Black-owned Columbia business district known as the "Sharp-End" once boomed with barber shops, restaurants, grocery stores, a doctor's office, taverns, and funeral homes. However, an unfortunate by-product of desegregation was the dismantling of this black business community. This presentation will explore success strategies used by some present-day black Columbia entrepreneurs to survive and prosper.
