The Detroit Historical Museum has celebrated Black Business Month in a major way. In June, the museum asked the community to nominate their favorite Black-owned businesses for an upcoming exhibit, and now the honorees have been chosen.
The announcement came during a special ceremony at the museum on August 18. 36 entrepreneurs will be highlighted in this special exhibit, open to the public in October. The initiative comes from the Historical Society's effort to tell more engaging stories about Detroiters and their hustle spirit.
The winners were chosen from nearly 800 nominees from all over Detroit. An independent committee selected the 36 winners, who will be featured in five Detroit Historical Museum exhibits over the course of 2022 and 2023. A new group will be profiled each quarter.
