Despite facing discrimination and systemic barriers restricting access to entrepreneurial opportunities, Black people made significant contributions to business practices that enriched communities across the United States. The National Negro Business League (NNBL) was founded by Booker T. Washington in Boston, Massachusetts in 1900, and became the largest association of Black business-people and professionals in the country. The National Negro Business League predated the United States Chamber of Commerce by 12 years.
