This series documents long-term and multigenerational business ownership in the Black community through oral history interviews
with owners of businesses located in Los Angeles County.
Interviews in this series were conducted by Yolanda Hester, M.A., African American studies, UCLA for the UCLA Center for Oral
History Research during 2017-2018. Hester prepared for the interviews in this series by looking at a number of books and articles
that examined Black business ownership in a historical context, as well as articles that examined it from a social science
perspective and looked at current socioeconomic debates and findings.
