Who is this gentleman? I am glad you asked.
This is a photo of Arthur J. Wilson. Mr. Wilson was the 2nd Black Certified Public Accountant. He was licensed in 1923 in the State of Illinois before the state required an apprenticeship to become a CPA. Arthur J. Wilson, CPA provided experience to others and by 1945 half of the Black CPAs in the country worked in Chicago.
The National Society of Black CPAs mission is to build off of the Black CPAs that paid the price for our existence and wanted to ensure that number of Black CPAs would be greater than today’s less than 1% of the CPA profession.
