Insights from African American Management History
By Leon C Prieto & Simone TA Phipps
Part of the Online Seminars in Business History Series run by Gesellschaft fuer Unternehmensgeschichte
Black entrepreneurs, managers, and management thought leaders are generally conspicuously absent from the field of Management History, omitted, not because they did not contribute, but because they and their contributions have been ignored or overlooked. This session explores Management History by presenting two of the many Black management thought leaders and practitioners, as well as highlighting some of their contributions. Charles Clinton Spaulding (President of the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company) and Maggie Lena Walker (President of St. Luke Penny Savings Bank) will be discussed.
