A Blasian Couple for Asian American Heritage Month
Mr. Lewis grew up in a middle class home in Baltimore, Maryland and went to Harvard Law School. His first major business deal was the acquistion of McCall Pattern company, then later Beatrice International Foods renaming it TLC Beatrice International. TLC became the first black owned company to have more than 1 million dollars in annual sales.
Besides the businesses Lewis’ legacy includes the Richard F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture; a biography “Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun” which he was working on before his untimely death, and his two beautiful daughters. There is also a Richard F. Lewis award which Sean Combs was the first recipient of.
