Check Out The Black Trailblazers Who Paved the Way For Us All
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

While many of us admire and are inspired by the likes of Kenneth Chenault, Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, Russell Simmons and many of the other powerful and successful African Americans in our country, we can tend to forget about those who paved the way.

In a new campaign called “Black Enterprise Trailblazers” sponsored by Wal-Mart, we focus primarily on Jackie Robinson’s new film, “42,” which highlights Robinson ending baseball’s color barrier and the many struggles he had to face in doing so.

Robinson opened the door for many black professional athletes as a whole, but many other African Americans in other industries as well.

Take a look at the list of Black Trailblazers at our Trailblazers landing page.
