“Save a part of all you earn. Pay yourself first. Never borrow anything that, if forced to it, you can’t pay back.”
These are principles for success from Dr. A.G. Gaston, a man from Birmingham, Alabama who started with zero and built an empire. These principles serve as the backdrop for the annual A.G. Gaston Conference. The conference seeks to empower small businesses from emerging markets to make their mark on Birmingham and the world.
ASALH was founded by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1915 in response to the lack of information on the accomplishments of African Americans. He established Negro History Week in 1926 and 50 years later in 1976 that week became a month-long celebration that today is supported nationally and internationally.
The ASALH Annual Conference brings together more than 1000 individuals-academics, community builders, educators, business professionals and other to explore the history and culture of African Americans and people of African descent
