The Road to Someplace Better – From Segregated South to Harvard Business School and Beyond
First female African-American MBA graduate of Harvard Business School
Autobiography of Lillian (Hobson) Lincoln Lambert the first female African-American MBA graduate of Harvard Business School. Raised in Powhatan County Virginia during the dark days of segregation she sought something better. Arriving in New York City at the age of eighteen she realized the path to some place better was the education path.
Ms. Lambert writes “I first started down “the road to someplace better” in 1958 at the age of 18 leaving my family farm in rural Virginia for the bright lights and better jobs of New York City. Little did I know that the city was not awaiting the arrival of a naïve black girl armed with only a high school diploma. While working as a maid clerk typist and salesperson I never dreamed that one day I would be the CEO of a $20 million company with 1 200 employees. I went from pushing a broom to owning the broom and everything else connected with a building maintenance business.”
