These free blacks owned and operated a variety of businesses, accumulated real estate, and owned fine homes. In addition, many free African Americans owned slaves. After the Civil War, New Bern boasted an enterprising, educated African American elite. African American leaders included politicians, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, investors, and religious leaders.
