  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1959
    Born
    Black was born in 1959, the youngest of seven children and raised in the Frazier Courts housing projects in South Dallas.
    More Details Hide Details As a doorman at a hotel in downtown Dallas, his father, Albert Black Sr., came to know influential city business leaders who would regularly meet with the Chamber of Commerce. After work, Black Sr. would return home and explain to his son how these men would determine which individuals would hold powerful positions within the city. He would tell Black Jr., “I want my boy to be like those men running the city.” Hearing these words were Black's initial inspiration to become an entrepreneur, nonprofit volunteer, and civic leader. Black began his business career at age ten, when he and his friends borrowed a lawn mower and started Best Friends Lawn Service, charging $2 per lawn, and eventually becoming "the first in the neighborhood to get a power mower." During this time, President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty began. Government service trucks made stops to the projects Black resided in to deliver free lunches to the low-income area. Black, however, refused to participate in this program. He later was quoted as saying, "I distinctly remember how much disdain I had for the free-lunch program, I would have my own lunch instead. Welfare has a place, but it’s a poor substitute for gainful employment. One is loaded with ambition, and the other is not."
