Carter Drugs is the only Black owned drug store in Milwaukee.

An African American male starting his own business in the 1960s was not an easy task. However, challenges were nothing new to Pharmacist Lester Carter and on April 1, 1968,  he opened Carter Drug Store. Carter still remains the only Black owned drug store in Milwaukee.

After completing rigorous study and training at Creighton University’s School of Pharmacy, Pharmacist Lester Carter literally worked his way up ­— from soda fountain clerk — to a pharmacy position. “In the back of my mind I knew I always wanted to get the best training humanly possible and to have a first class community pharmacy,” said Pharmacist Lester Carter, who is also a herbologist and responsible for several formulas used for many stubborn medical problems including scalp ringworm, and razor bumps.

Pharmacist Carter has trained many young pharmacy graduates, and reminds young people there is no substitute for hard work and dedication to scholastic excellence to be successful in life.
