How slaves learned to read and write.  How former slaves got accepted to college. We name white colleges that had black students during slavery. We name the HBCUs that were established before 1865. 


We talk about what racists did to destroy black business districts.  The "Black Wall St" Tulsa story  and how freeways destroyed many black business districts. 


 We name many black business owners in the 1800's, slaves who bought their freedom. We also interviewed a number of people whose family owned a business in the early 1900's. And, more.
