BOSS: THE BLACK EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS

Directed by Stanley Nelson

 

The little-known story of African American entrepreneurship from post enslavement and reconstruction to the present, where skill, industriousness, ingenuity and sheer courage in the face of overwhelming odds provide one of the backbones of this nation’s economic and social growth.  Directed by Peabody- and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson (Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black CollegesThe Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution and Freedom Summer), Boss: The Black Experience in Business shines a light on the story of resilience and resistance within the black American experience in the face of overwhelming odds, including racial hostility and violence, economic exclusion, segregation and discrimination.
