The Business Strategy of Booker T. Washington

Michael B. Boston

University Press of Florida

This chapter states that the National Negro Business League (NNLB) was another forum in which Booker T. Washington espoused his entrepreneurial ideas. His statements during the Negro Farmers' Conference showed no consistency between his public and private articulations of his entrepreneurial ideas. The chapter analyzes the NNLB from 1900 to 1915 which demonstrates that Washington implemented and promoted his entrepreneurial philosophy as a strategy for real freedom, empowerment, and equality. His efforts made him not only a champion of African-American business development, but they also institutionalized his entrepreneurial philosophy. He hoped to use the medium of NNLB to reach the greatest number of people possible. The chapter also highlights the history of NNLB.
