Boss: the Black Experience in Business

 

  Boss: the Black Experience in Business

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 4/1/19

This is a really eye opening documentary about the history of African Americans in business in our country. I learned quite a lot watching it. It was so good that I wanted it to go longer than 2 hours. Perhaps they'll make a sequel one day.

I think everyone should watch this, particularly young people who may not know about this history.

There are no features or extras on this DVD.

Arlington, VA March 26, 2019 – This April, PBS Distribution will be releasing a plethora of new programs on DVD and digitally, including the critically acclaimed, “VICTORIA, SEASON 3,” the highly-anticipated MRS. WILSON,” the fascinating RECONSTRUCTION: AMERICA AFTER THE CIVIL WAR,” and the eye-opening “CHARM CITY.”

BOSS: THE BLACK EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS

Directed by Peabody- and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson (Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution and Freedom Summer), BOSS: THE BLACK EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS shines a light on the story of resilience and resistance within the black American experience in the face of racial hostility and violence, economic exclusion, segregation and discrimination. The new two-hour documentary traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs over 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of million-dollar empires.

Stories featured in the film include those of entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker, publisher John H. Johnson, Motown CEO Berry Gordy, and business pioneer and philanthropist Reginald F. Lewis, among many others.

BOSS: THE BLACK EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS brings viewers on a journey from the end of Reconstruction through the present, tracing the emergence of a stable black business community alongside the greater struggle for civil rights.
