Young entrepreneur inspired by history of black businesses

Exploring Instagram one day, Catory Goodman saw the phrase “Black Wall Street,” and a photo that got her interested in the history of black business communities. What she found inspired her to help reinvent that prosperity for people of color today. “Six hundred businesses, 20 churches, 30 grocery stores, two movie theaters, six private airplanes, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, schools, libraries, law offices, even a bus system. All black-owned.” Goodman discusses black business in the podcast from Youth Radio.
