Free Screening – Boss: The Black Experience in Business

Join the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (LIAACC) for a free screening of Boss: The Black Experience in Business on Thursday, March 28, 2019  

About the Film: The history of business and entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the American story, but often absent from that narrative are the names and experiences of African Americans who, from the country’s earliest days, have embodied the qualities of innovation, risk-taking and determination to forge a path toward a better life.  Tracing more than 150 years of African American men and women, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of multimillion-dollar empires, the new two-hour documentary Boss: The Black Experience in Business, premiering nationwide Tuesday, April 23 at 8:00 p.m. on PBS (check local listings), seeks to claim their place in the story of American entrepreneurship. The film will be available to stream the following day on and on PBS apps. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, the new documentary brings the largely unknown stories of enterprising African Americans to the forefront.
