J. B. Blayton and the Push for Economic Empowerment in Atlanta’s Black Community

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



Abstract:

Jesse Blayton was a noted entrepreneur and educator in Atlanta during the mid 20th century. He, with others, was actively involved in creating and sustaining a vibrant, separate Black business community. Blayton’s contribution to creating this community followed two distinct tracks: finance and education. In finance, he worked to make capital available to Black homeowners and entrepreneurs through a bank, savings and loan association and an investment company. In education, he taught accounting at Atlanta’s higher education institutions and created two vocational schools to teach business and electronics repair. J. B. Blayton in many ways epitomizes Atlanta’s Black Business leaders from the Great Migration through the Civil Rights era in their efforts to build Black economic power within the constraints of segregation. This article chronicles various facets of Blayton’s business ventures to extract his influence on the Black economic power of Atlanta during a 50 year span.
