The history of business and entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the American story, but often absent 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 - which is at the heart of the American entrepreneurial spirit. Boss: The Black Experience in Business, by Peabody and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, seeks to illuminate, educate, and inform, by examining more than 150 years of African American men and women - from those bound by bondage, to moguls at the top of multi-million dollar empires.
