Documenting the Past, Driving the Future

Supporting minority enterprise is as relevant today as it’s been historically significant for the past 50 years. Minority Business Hall of Fame & Museum is proud to shepherd future minority business growth. We are currently building a unique Resource Portal that will share best practices and case studies written by the elite group of pioneers and contemporary leaders whose contributions have made minority business success possible.


Who We Are

Development and growth of minority businesses globally.

The Minority Business Hall of Fame and Museum (MBHF&M) was founded in 2004 to spotlight and record the achievements of the pioneers who ignited, and made possible, the development of minority business enterprises. The nonprofit organization was formed as a result of the collaborative efforts of John F. Robinson, president of the National Minority Business Council, Inc., New York; Don McKneely, president and publisher of the Business News Group; and Carol Daugherty Foster, editor of MBN USA.
