When more than 1,000 entrepreneurs gather at the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference + Expo in Columbus, Ohio May 14-17, they will witness the presentation of the coveted A. G. Gaston Lifetime Achievement Award which “recognizes the entrepreneurial spirit and the guiding light of an individual who has established an extended and consistently distinguished record of success.” The award was named in honor of Arthur George Gaston, who was named BLACK ENTERPRISE‘s Entrepreneur of the Century in 1992 - a legendary businessman who built a conglomerate in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, becoming one of the nation’s first African American multimillionaires and a financial supporter of the Civil Rights Movement.
