The Emerging Force of African American Enterprise
The 1995 Calendar of African American History

The unconquerable spirit of black entrepreneurship dates back to the early 1900s when after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation African Americans saw reason to raise their heads and renew their expectations. In 1995, Aetna celebrated black entrepreneurs who boldly faced the future and commanded a seat at the table of prosperity. They are no ordinary entrepreneurs. They are bright, bold, daring and well-educated leaders who are major catalysts in the growth of African American business.
