Ø  Mt. Hebron Celebrates Black History Month!
Read By: Robert Foyles
In the 80’s, Reginald F. Lewis was the nation’s richest African-American and the first to build a billion-dollar company.  Although Lewis took pride in being a Black man, he didn’t like to be pigeonholed as a result of his race.  In 1983, he created the TLC Group, a venture capital firm known for corporate takeovers of struggling companies and then turning them around.  Lewis’ biggest coup came in 1987 when he purchased the international division of Beatrice Foods.  At $985 million, it was the largest leveraged buyout at the time.  Renaming it TLC Beatrice International, Lewis rapidly turned around the company as its chairman and CEO.  In 1993, Lewis died at the age of 50 after a long bout with brain cancer.  In 2005, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture opened its doors in Baltimore.
