In an era in which African Americans were oppressed and deprived of many of the rights and privileges of citizenship, Scott Bond rose frombeing born a slave inMadison County,Mississippi, in the early 1850s to wealth and status as a farmer, merchant, and business entrepreneur in Madison, Arkansas, by the early 1900s. From Slavery to Wealth is the story of an extraordinary individual widely known and respected at the time of its first publication in 1917, for his integrity, prodigious energy, and strong work ethic. Throughout his career he never wearied of imploring African Americans to seize the opportunities offered them in the South in general and in the Arkansas Delta in particular. Scott Bond enjoyed an enviable reputation among blacks as well as whites. This reputation ultimately extended far beyond his local community to prominent blacks throughout the South and elsewhere, especially after he gained wider exposure as a conspicuous figure in the National Negro Business League in the early years of the twentieth century.

With this 2008 reprint edition, the current generation can be inspired by the man who has been referred to as the black John D. Rockefeller of Arkansas.

From the Publisher:

Edited with a new preface and introduction by Willard B. Gatewood

From the Back Cover:

Scott Bond was nothing less than an amazing man, and it is important that information on him be available to modern readers. Despite the racist times in which he lived, Bond became a leading businessman with a reputation for shrewdness and integrity. I hope readers, especially Arkansans, will see in Scott Bond an example of an African American leader who made myriad contributions to his state--and who still serves as a model for young men and women who hope to accomplish great things.
--Tom W. Dillard, founder and editor-in-chief, Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture
