dc.description.abstractDuring Richard Nixon’s 1968 presidential campaign, he included a plank in his platform with the “Black Capitalism” Initiative. It was meant to promote black entrepreneurship and give the black community an opportunity for financial freedom. This paper will explore this initiative and why it failed, as well as a black-owned brewery and the adversity it had to face for its struggle to survive.en_US
