Black Owned Business Spotlight

#CLTMEDWeek2021 Carol Lilly

In 1983, black women were not necessarily a driving force in business development. Although many of them were entering the workforce full time, the thought of a woman owning a company that dealt directly with construction trades was almost unrealistic. But Carol Lilly has proved that theory to be wrong. As owner of Lil Associates II, Ms. Lilly has worked with large construction firms such as Edifice, Turner, and Rogers Construction. She has created a formidable track record in the Queen City and its surrounding areas.
