Celebrating the Innovators, Inventors and Entrepreneurs We Admire for Black History Month

At 1871, we pride ourselves on celebrating and fostering diversity every single day. For Black History Month, we took some time to speak with members on a variety of platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and video. We had one simple question: What black innovator, inventor or entrepreneur has inspired you?

Our video manager Paul Matian produced video profiles of some of the entrepreneurs and staff members in our space sharing their thoughts:

Jessica Williams, 1871 WiSTEM Program Co-facilitator.

Darryl Thomas, MWSEQ CEO.

Carmen Brace, Northstar Insights Founder.

Topics: Videos, Community
