SBA Shares Resources for Black-Owned Businesses During National Black History Month
By Victor Parker, Deputy Associate Administrator for the SBA Office of Field Operations 
This National Black History Month, we commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the destruction of Black Wall Street where hundreds of small business dreams were deferred in the town of Greenwood, Oklahoma. Today, Greenwood’s 1921 Commission and other small business leaders join forces to help this community rebuild and regain economic equity. SBA also celebrates the immeasurable contributions black business owners have made to entrepreneurship in this country. From key historical figures like Madame CJ Walker to well-known innovators like Oprah Winfrey, black business owners throughout history have shaped U.S. entrepreneurship and paved the way for today’s small business owners.
