This is the story of Uncle Cleve an autodidact who founded several businesses amongst the plantations of Glen Allen, Mississippi. It demonstrates how entrepreneurship can not only allow one to make a living but set one’s soul free; even if one is an uneducated black man in the age of sharecropping.
For me – at the time a young black business school student–this book changed everything.
