Hampton, Vir ginia The Negro in business has been making unusual progress. In 1911, the American Negro, engage:! in farming, merchandising, real es tate. manufacturing, lumbering, insurance, printing and publishing, engineering and banking, contributed over $700,000,0 0 0 to the wealth of the nation. It has ben aptly said that "the race creates admirably; it gets left in the distribution." The problem of the Negro in business is this: How to make the raw material produced by him not the end of his effort, but the basis of liis individual ! activity. Through persistence, initiative and co-operation, thousands of Xe- I gro men and women in all parts of the United States have developeo small business ventures into . sub- | stantial business enterprises. They have saved and invested money care- , fully: they have put into their ev eryday business life the wise, sugges- 1 ti on given them bv Dr. Washington and other men who are vitally in terested in the race's welfare. Today the outlook for the Xegro in busi ness is not only bright but actually : inspiring. Negro^ men and women are quietly getting a firm hold on the essentials of success in business - ? the buying of homes, the extension of busines, the opening of factories, the establishment, of banks and V'ie better ^appreciation of (commercial f)u rsnits. Dr. Washington has emphasize'* the importance of ten million Ne groes in America becoming the own-, ers and users of the 270,000,000 acres of unused and unoccupied land in the "South and West. He de clares that if white men can estab lish and operate saw mills, coal mines, brick yards, lime kilns, and '."ither enterprises, he can see no leason why the Negro should not ei.gage in similar work and reap tome of the benefits which come to those who own, develop, manufac ture and trade in the natural re sources of the country. Tie de clares that in at lea3t, twenty-five places* in the Sout^ r.nd West Ne , groes may build towns and' cities similar to Mound Bayou in. Missis sippi and E'oley in Oklahoma. To carry on this constructive work Jv* gro jnen and women from the col leges and universities are needed To increase the business strength ?*nd influence ol Negroes, men must -organize, locally, in the state, in the nation. By i lie side of the teacher and the minister, there nuisi stand in helpful relation the inde pendent. farmer, the real estate own er, the manufacturer, the merchant and the banker. 1 There are places in the South to day, according to Dr. Wasliir^to, for r?,000 additional Negro dry goods stores. S.OOO grocery stores, 3,300 drug stores, 2,nf)0 ShOe stores, t.f.r.o ntlllfnery stores and 2,000 Negro ' banfcs. Development and activity iti all these lines," accord ing to Dr.. Washington, "does not mean that we arc to be commercial ized as a race ? to ho fnerely bread winners, hewers of wood and draw* ers of water. It moans that we! shall !><? producers of bread, owner# of bread, manufacturers-, of . br^ftd, dealers in bread, and that we shall 1 gather wealth from the broad bus!* | ness which can he turned*.
