Hispanic Chamber Will Honor Business Leaders, Members

In the midst of racial discrimination in business and employment in the late 1920s, the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, then known as the Mexican Chamber of Commerce, helped propel a number of minority-owned businesses into existence. Over time, it evolved into an entrepreneurial advocacy organization of more than 1,300 members for all Hispanic people, minorities, and women in business.
