February is Black History Month throughout the country, a time to celebrate the accomplishments, achievements and vast contributions of African Americans throughout the nation's history. To commemorate Black History Month, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal highlighted 200 Black leaders in the Twin Cities region. Many of the distinguished leaders are leaders in the business community and many are part of Minnesota Chamber of Commerce member organizations. Congratulations to these inspirational leaders for your contributions to the state and your businesses!
