On this day in 1900, Booker T. Washington made history by founding the National Negro Business League in Boston. The pioneering organization emerged as African Americans were striving to secure economic independence and social equality in the face of deep-seated racism and discrimination.

Washington’s vision for the league was to foster economic empowerment within the Black community through entrepreneurship and business development. The National Negro Business League quickly gained momentum and became a platform for Black entrepreneurs.

The league played a vital role in promoting economic self-sufficiency, leaving a lasting legacy that continued to inspire generations in their pursuit of economic success and civil rights.

In 1966, the League was renamed and reincorporated in Washington D.C. as the National Business League, which is still in operation today.
