A highly respected and nationally known authority on black business development, Earl G. Graves is the founder and publisher of Black Enterprise, a magazine that focuses on issues and news relating to black-owned businesses in the United States. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 1990, Black Enterprise —to which Graves contributes a monthly publisher’s column—boasts a circulation of over 230, 000 and annual revenues of more than $15 million. A key communicator and spokesman within his field, Graves was once described by the Reverend Jesse Jackson in the Washington Post as the “primary educator in the country on black business—on trends and opportunities and the like.” Graves himself is a prosperous businessman; as Margaret K. Webb noted in the Washington Post, “Graves’s success extends beyond the pages of his magazine.” Black Enterprise is published by the Earl G. Graves Publishing Company, the parent corporation of which, Earl G. Graves, Ltd., is directed by Graves in his capacities as president and chief executive officer. In addition to these responsibilities Graves serves on the board of directors of several corporations, including the Chrysler Corporation, and is chairman of the Black Business Council. In 1990 Graves made national business headlines when he purchased the rights for Pepsi-Cola’s Washington, D.C., distribution operations. Graves’s partner in the venture is Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who serves as the partnership’s executive vice-president and spokesperson, while Graves acts as chief executive officer. The franchise, which distributes over four million cases of Pepsi annually in the District of Columbia and parts of Maryland, has been estimated to be worth about $60 million and makes Graves and Johnson Pepsi’s largest minority franchisees.
