The race to success in the business world has been more than just an uphill battle for African Americans—more often it is an unaided rock climb. However, African Americans’ role in the U.S. finance industry dates back to the turn of the century. Despite the many oppressive obstacles black people have faced in finance, black entrepreneurs have succeeded, often with great societal impact and a commitment to serving their community. The panel Blacks in Finance: A Rich History is a moderated discussion hosted by CNBC’s Sharon Epperson that covers this often untapped history. Epperson is joined by a panel of successful leaders and entrepreneurs including the founder of Smith Graham, Gerald Smith, co-founder of Fairview Capital Partners, Laurence Morse, the founder, chairman, and CEO of Ariel Investments, John Rogers, Jr. along with Black Enterprises’ Editor in Chief, Derek Dingle. The discussion also features a Q&A session with questions from The HistoryMakers BusinessMakers Advisory Committee. Don’t miss out on this fascinating insight into the black financial world.
