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



Abstract:

The Atlanta Life Insurance Company was one of the largest and most successful African American financial institutions in the country during the 20th century. Atlanta is known for its established African American community and large black elite. It was the home of the nation's wealthiest African American, Atlanta Life founder, Alonzo F. Herndon. Today, there are remnants of his wealth, with the historical realities of his life and fortune fading. This paper explores the roles his firm played in the African American community, particularly during the pre-segregation period. Archival and ethnographic research also reveals the significance of identity formation for Atlanta Life employees. This paper provides a unique perspective for examining Black entrepreneurship, its history, and the complexity in the African American community, and the importance to preserve Herndon architecture throughout the city of Atlanta.
