National Negro Business League

Today, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History posted a picture of the National Negro Business League in 1900 to their Facebook page.  Booker T. Washington, seated 2nd from left, was the 1st president. Lo and behold, who is that to the left of him? Why, it’s James Carroll Napier.  Napier served as President of the League from 1915-1919.
