Join us for an evening with history educator, researcher, and media producer Laurel Sneed for a lecture and discussion of the African-American business tradition during the era of slavery and in the decades afterward. After viewing video clips of an interview with historian Dr. Juliet E.K. Walker, author of The History of Black Business in America, Ms. Sneed will briefly discuss black business activity in Eastern NC during and after slavery and will review three outstanding examples of the 19th century African–American business tradition in our state.
