Black Honchos in the Corner Office 

Across the country, minority entrepreneurs and business leaders continue to head companies and make their mark in corporate America. In fact, between 2002 and 2007, the number of Black-owned businesses in the United States increased by 61 percent to 1.9 million — a growth rate more than triple the 18-percent growth rate for all businesses. In honor of Black History Month, BET.com pays tribute to some of the most powerful players on the scene today. –Danielle Wright
