Inhaltsangabe: Book by Greenberg, Jonathan D.
From Library Journal:
Greenberg, a freelance journalist, has written a thoroughly researched biography of the late Jake Simmons Jr., the most successful African-American entrepreneur in the history of the petroleum industry. Simmons's ancestors were slaves of the Oklahoma-based Creek Indian tribe, which treated their slaves with unusual dignity; this may have helped Simmons's ancestors to strike out on their own when given the opportunity. Upon the uprooting of the Creek nation, many of the former slaves became wealthy landowners in the Tulsa area, leasing their lands for oil exploration at the turn of this century. Simmons, a graduate of Tuskegee Institute, was greatly influenced by its founder and president, Booker T. Washington, and in addition to an analysis of Simmons's business expertise, Greenberg also details Simmons's civil rights activities. This is a complementary work to another African-American business biography, John H. Johnson's Succeeding Against the Odds ( LJ 6/1/89), and is highly recommended for most libraries.
