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.

I’m looking forward to reading your various historical Hubs!
This is one is definitely going to be a challenge. I cannot wait to give it a try, and see what other people come up with! =] Great idea, AEvans!
Hi Everyone! I finally finished my hub on Lucille Ball. She was a trail blazer for women. http://sholland10.hubpages.com/hub/Impo … cille-Ball
Can't wait to read some fascinating Hubs this week! Great topic choice, AEvans!
Awesome topic, AEvans! I may just have to hop on board this one! Looking forward to reading all the great stuff to come. Thanks for the keyword search Simone, as always, you rock!
I am writing two so far. They are now saved and unpublished. Will have them complete in the next two days.
Hi Simone, does the hub have to be business related? Could I write on a famous person who contributed to the freedom of slavery in my country?
Good question. I don't see why you could not.
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
Hey guys, how about something specific to my own country? I have no idea what to write. I hate have having to write some I no nothing about and for me that's history!
How about Women's Rights' in Jamaica? Or Jamaican Entrepreneurs who made it in the United States?
There are many Jamaican women who have made it in business all over the world. I'm working on one and should have it completed by tomorrow.
Yeah, Cardisa! AEvans an Loi-Renee are right on. I'd love to read about those people! Who was really influential in Jamaica's history when it came to building a local economy?
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
http://dipless.hubpages.com/hub/Three-M … f-Business
I can see how that might happen- unfortunately the slave trade played a huge role in much of history's business! Bleh. But thanks for the cool exploration of the issue!
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.
This is our latest entry..and we couldn't wait to share it:
http://lorddecross.hubpages.com/hub/Fro … The-Legend
WOW, that is a ton of information. Amazing to what lengths inhumane humans will go too, just to place coin in their pockets...(gagging just a bit).
I've written a second one this topic has kind of inspired me to write
http://dipless.hubpages.com/hub/Famous- … repreneurs
This is about the difficulties faced by black-owned businesses and the inspirational black women entrepreneurs.
I love all the stats you've included! And yikes- it's terrible to read that discrimination is still somewhat of a barrier. But the successful women you presented are indeed inspirational!
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.
Awesome that the largest growth in business has been among black business women. This is a really informative hub dipless. Madam Walker is one amazing woman!
Here is our entry....Thanks!
http://lorddecross.hubpages.com/hub/Fam … amps-James
Is fictional but tries to cover 3 females that became famous
Thanks Simone! this is our second entry and came within the hour!
http://lorddecross.hubpages.com/hub/Fam … elius?done
Here is our third entry Simone, thanks Aevans for the topic!
http://lorddecross.hubpages.com/hub/Fam … nt-7412065
Niiiiice! Both pieces are really well done, lord. Thanks for sharing your moving works with us.
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
I decided to write on one of my inspirations. Gloria Mayfield Banks. She is a Famous Black Female Entrepreneur in the World of Mary Kay and beyond. I would like to introduce you to Gloria.
http://angelap.hubpages.com/hub/Famous- … ield-Banks
I am right here. Here is my first hub and the second will be here later.
http://aevans.hubpages.com/hub/FamousBl … repreneurs
There are some really inspirational people in there, funny that we picked two of the same Never heard of Maggie Lena Walker so was nice to find out a bit more, thank you for this.
I quite enjoyed it, too! It's cool to see how the achievements started out relatively small... and how more of your modern examples have seen HUGE, international success!
Thanks for the inspiring topic. ^^ After giving it a day, all I could think of was this guy, so I wrote a hub about him. Hope I could stay inspired to write on upcoming topics ^^
http://dfuntanar.hubpages.com/hub/Famou … is-Gardner
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!
http://donnaisabella.hubpages.com/hub/F … -Breedlove
Here is my contribution, Madame C.J. Walker. How to introduce and teach her story so that kids (and grown-ups) can be inspired by both her remarkable business story and her amazing character. http://thebookmom.hubpages.com/hub/madamecjwalker
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.
My last minute submission.
