Abstract:

Regional sales manager Clyde Martin was born on September 28, 1936 in Bolivar County, Mississippi. Martin attended school at the White Star Missionary Baptist Church and later graduated from Cleveland (Mississippi) Colored Consolidated High School in 1955. An honor student, but an activist too, young Martin led a student strike for more relevant curriculum. Living in Chicago in 1956, Martin was hired by Jay’s Potato Chips as the first black route salesman. He determined that he could sell more of Jay’s five cents bags which made him consistently the top salesman during the 1960s and 1970s. He made assistant regional sales manager in 1967 and was the first African American to rise to regional sales manager in 1973. Martin fought racism and made sure that Jay’s hired other African Americans as drivers and salesmen. In 1978, Martin became an inspector for the Internal Affairs Division of Cook County, Illinois Sheriff’s Department.
