Pantheon of Pioneers: A.G. Gaston (1892-1996)

Arthur George "A.G." Gaston was born in a log cabin in Demopolis, Ala., in 1892.  He defied the social climate of the times to become one of the most successful African American business owners in America, and later, a behind-the-scenes political leader at a critical time in civil rights history

"Find a need and fill it. Successful businesses are founded on the needs of people." ~ A.G. Gaston
