The chapter opens with a discussion on the status of insurance at the turn of the century—a luxury that was not widely available to African Americans. After experiencing a fire of his own, Moore and John Merrick, along with 5 other investors (W.G. Pearson, E.A. Johnson, D.T. Watson, J.E. Shepard, and P.W. Dawkins) started their own insurance company to cater to Durham’s Black population. The rest of the chapter details the initial years of the North Carolina Mutual and Provident Association.
