From this country’s earliest days, African Americans have embodied the qualities of innovation, risk-taking and determination to forge a path toward a better life. But, their story, their role in writing the history of business and entrepreneurship and their hand in shaping America’s economy is often neglected.

Boss: The Black Experience in Business premieres 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 23 on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA).

This two-hour documentary traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs for more than 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of multi-million-dollar empires.

From innovators to leaders of industry, Boss ties together the past and the present, exploring the inspiring stories of trailblazing African American entrepreneurs and the significant contributions of contemporary business leaders.
