Abstract
Warren C. Coleman and the Economic Development of Cabarrus County, NC
by Reverend Harold O. Robinson

Warren Clay Coleman began his business career in 1871, beginning as a collector of rags, bones and junk thus becoming one of Concords richest merchants. He attended Howard University from 1873 to 1874, as a student at Howard he prepared himself for a career in business. Coleman's first business was a combination barber shop, cake and candy store. He went on to purchase land in the African American Community ("Coleburg" or Logan Community). He constructed a series of wood frame rental homes. The area south of Corban Avenue and west of Spring Street became Concord's principal African American residential community. Coleman developed between 1875 and 1904 nearly one-hundred rentals. He purchased four farms and a substantial number of city lots. He thereby became one of Cabarrus County's largest property owners, black or white, and the most influential citizen. By 1895 Coleman had considerable influence among fellow African Americans throughout the State of North Carolina. He was considered one of the richest African American in the South. The Coleman Manufacturing Company, the nations first black-owned and operated textile factory in Concord, drew praise from the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church and through out the nation. This panel will address the economic influence of Warren C. Coleman in Cabarrus County and beyond.
