Vince Cullers was a pioneer in advertising. He
started Vince Cullers Advertising in 1956, the nation’s first African American
owned Advertising agency and is credited with creating some of the most
innovative and exciting advertising during his time.  Cullers created his firm after being rejected
by firms who after meeting him in person would promptly inform him that no
positions were available.  After
freelancing for a few years, including work for Johnson Publishing, he finally earned
enough money to start his business and the rest is history.  He was inducted into the Advertising Hall of
Fame in 2007
