Publisher Earl G. Graves Sr. Inducted Into The National Great Blacks In Wax Museum

Joining the ranks of notables such as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Hon. Thurgood Marshall, and civil rights legend Rosa Parks, black enterprise Founder and Publisher Earl G. Graves Sr. has become the latest African American leader to be inducted into The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum. Committed solely to the study and preservation of African American history, the Baltimore based museum exhibits life-sized, lifelike wax figures, showcasing historical and contemporary personalities of African ancestry.

Commissioned and dedicated by corporate sponsor ExxonMobil, the induction honors and recognizes Graves Sr. as the business voice of the African American community for nearly 36 years and acknowledges his dedication to education and equal opportunity. “Earl Graves Sr. has fought valiantly on behalf of black liberation,” says Dr. Joanne Martin, co-founder, president, and CEO of The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum. “Through black enterprise and his lifelong advocacy for economic empowerment, he has provided countless African Americans with the tools to achieve liberation through financial success. Graves’ inclusion also recognizes his commitment to inspiring our youth-something that has been recognized with more than 60 honorary doctorates, as well as the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management at Morgan State University.”

Graves Sr. currently serves as chairman of Earl G. Graves Ltd., parent company of black enterprise magazine, Black Enterprise Magazine’s Keys to a Better Life radio report, and Black Enterprise Report television program.
