The Graves Family Christmas Card, featuring all of the children and
grandchildren of Earl and Barbara Graves, was an annual tradition greatly anticipated by family and friends alike.
â€œMy mother was a steadfast and loving partner and counselor to my father; his quiet source of strength and inspiration,â€ says Earl Graves Jr., president and CEO of Black Enterprise. â€œShe served as mentor and guide to several generations of employees, managers and professionals. Above all, she genuinely cared for every member of the Black Enterprise family, and held a special passion for children and young people in particular.â€
