About A.G. Gaston
Arthur George Gaston is not only the inspiration of this annual event but directly inspired many business people in Alabama. He succeeded as a serial entrepreneur and empowered other African Americans during a time when the nation legalized their oppression. Arthur George (A.G.) Gaston owned several successful businesses in Alabama during the Jim Crow law time period. He amassed a fortune worth more than $40 million from a business empire spanning communications, real estate and insurance. Remembered in the Alabama Academy of Honor, the Birmingham Hall of Fame and as Black Enterprise Magazine’s “Entrepreneur of the Century,” Gaston’s contributions to the community remain to this day.
