"Black Capitalism" as Negro Hope
Not available online
Title"Black Capitalism" as Negro Hope
AbstractBiographical article about Booker T. Washington and his statements from around the turn of the 20th century about "black capitalism" being re-popularized by the Richard Nixon administration in the late 1960s. The article mentions that Booker Washington "wrote in the Kansas City Journal around 1900" on this subject, promoting the initiation of self-started businesses by blacks rather than depending on "handouts" or government welfare.
