WTCI Presents Free Screening of "Boss: The Black Experience in Business" at Palace Theater

Price: Free


This event has already happened.

WTCI is honored to partner with Rise (formerly Jazzanooga), the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga and the City of Chattanooga Office of Multicultural Affairs to host a screening and discussion of the PBS documentary, "Boss: The Black Experience in Business." Directed by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, the new documentary brings the largely unknown stories of enterprising African Americans to the forefront and will be screened at the Palace Theater on Wednesday, May 15.

The history of business and entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the American story, but often absent from that narrative are the experiences of African Americans. From the country's earliest days, African Americans have embodied the qualities of innovation, risk-taking and determination to forge a path toward a better life. "Boss: The Black Experience in Business," by Peabody and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs over 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of million-dollar empires.

We are excited to partner with RISE Chattanooga, Urban League Chattanooga and Multicultural Affairs: City of Chattanooga to host a screening of this inspiring film. Reserve your seats today for this free event presented as a part of the RemakeLearningDays celebrations in Chattanooga with support from the First Tennessee Foundation and Thompson Engineering.
