Black Gold = Standing Ovation
This was an excellent historical journey about a business giant.
A.G. Gaston was deemed the business man of the century by Black Enterprise. He lived his life not only building business, but in service to others. He practiced business in unconventional ways. Some very trendsetting. How he chose to set up some of his senior employees when he retired and sold the company worth many millions back to them was groundbreaking and inspiring. Standing Ovation.
