Hey there, Hubbers! Since we’re on the cusp of Black History Month (unless you’re in the UK ), AEvans suggested we go for a historical theme this week. I chose business as a theme, since it’s likely to earn you a bit more money on the side, and nearly every fascinating historical event, figure, and movement is tied to the business world in some way or another.
I did some keyword research on historical business Hub titles (both related to Black History Month and not) and shared them below, so if you’d like to give your Hub a good shot at getting traffic, consider taking one of these for a spin- AND creating a Hub that meets the criteria we’ve outlined in our latest Learning Center guide.

Hey Cardisa! If you don't include information on how that person influenced business (e.g. the business of slavery, trade) or how that person affected employment, it would not be properly categorized under the business history topic. You're welcome to do that, but be sure to re-categorize the Hub so it isn't moderated as deceptively categorized
Well I was going to write about thee points in history which affected business but the slave trade just kind of took over during my research so here is my hub for this weeks WTI: The effect of the Slave trade on business
indeed there was just so much information, however as it is 207 words off the magical 1500, I may extend it to include the others. I will decide later I guess when you take a population out of there country and force them into labour, it is inevitable you are going to change global economies and therefore business, thanks for the comments.
Yeah they can make some sobering reading, I know the discrimination from institutions such as banks was a shock to me too, I am going to do some research and see if it is the same in the UK although the stats are harder to find because we have so many sole traders. They are indeed especially C.J. Walker was a nice find on my research and she tied in with my slave hub too so win win.
Hi Simone, I don't usually participate in the WTI but this topic caught my eye. My hub is about a Jamaican poet, writer, and storyteller who used her country's unique and colorful language to entertain and teach people all over the world. I hope you enjoy it. http://hubpages.com/t/2d3543
I'm really glad you've joined in this week, Loi-Renee! Louise Bennett-Coverley is so awesome! I enjoyed your Hub very much indeed- it's very well put-together! Great use of the Table Capsule, and I'm glad you included that cool video, too
Simone, I just want to check, since this topic is tied with Black history month - does the hub have to be specifically about black people in business? I have been working on an idea that is not directly about specific black business people but it covers the fair trade movement. Will this be okay?
I had so much fun and found great joy in writing about one my favorite women, Madame C J Walker, whom I discovered by accident almost a decade ago when I was looking for someone to inspire me. Thanks for the opportunity!
Wow madame CJ Walker is popular, I only found out about herin my recent research for my articles and she really is an inspirational women. Thank you both for sharing your detailed information about her Well written and informative.
