Paul E. Taylor Among Black Wall Street EAST BALTIMORE Honorees, 4.15.14
This particular honoree, Paul Taylor, is a person who has helped shape and direct the flow of Bmorenews.com from the very beginning. Really and truly, I cannot say enough about him. He is a great support in an otherwise confusing world of business. He brings clarity and vision to any discussion and is a true gem in the City of Baltimore. He has helped countless entrepreneurs and business people by way of the Small Business Resource Center of Baltimore.
On an even more personal note, he is a fellow Poly parent. Having a son at Poly, Paul has been a great example to have. Navigating high school and college is a critical step - especially in the black community. I can attest that he leads by example and the proof is in the progress he and his wife have enjoyed in watching their children progress. Read in Full >>

Martin and Joanne Mitchell Martin. They established the museum in 1983 with several objectives in mind; one, to stimulate and interest in African-American history by revealing the little-know, often-neglected facts of history; and two, to use great leaders as role models to motivate youth to achieve; three, to improve race relation by dispelling myths of racial inferiority and superiority; and four, to support and work in conjunction with other nonprofit charitable organizations seeking to improve the social and economic status of African-Americans.
