    A great read, well written. A man that should be the cornerstone of black business history and black history month. He may be the first African American man to be a purveyor of vertical markets. His rolodex included Booker T and his hotel was the headquarters for Dr. ML King Jr.’s Alabama movement. He created a pipleline read: school to mold the excellence he so successfully modeled. Nice that the family could record/preserve the history! Great manifesto!
