Charles Clinton Spaulding (August 1, 1874 – August 1, 1952) led the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company from 1900 to 1952, a span during which North Carolina Mutual was the largest business owned by African-Americans. Spaulding was largely responsible for the success of North Carolina Mutual, a firm that made Durham known as "the Black Wall Street." North Carolina Mutual was America's largest black-owned business, with assets of over US$ 40 million at his death.
