From Galveston to Greatness

The Texas Association of African American Chambers of Commerce, the statewide organization representing 200,000 Black-owned businesses and the 22 chambers that support them, commemorated the strides Black businesses have made in Texas in a special way this June. In recognition of those contributions, as well as to chart a path forward for continued contributions, TAAACC will hosted “From Galveston to Greatness,” at the Austin Club on June 19, 2014. Dr. Juliet E.K. Walker, founder and director of the University of Texas Center for Black Business History, Entrepreneurship and Technology, will mark the occasion with details of the strides made by Black businessmen and women over the past 149 years.
