(This book was written because of the deep passion that God put in me to make a difference in my community. As I was preparing my detailed plan for my own non-profit vision I realized that I had gathered a vast amount of information that could help others. The first section of the book, I described how each of us could make an immediate impact. In section two, I identified hundreds of organizations around this country that are making a positive difference in Black America for the sole purpose to give you ideas on how to make an impact in your community. I went into a deeper depth of seventy plus organizations that has programs that stretch across character development, crime prevention, education development, community development, economic development, health & wellness and so much more. The categories below are also addressed among the hundreds of programs that I have highlighted. Please, find an area within you community where you can make a positive impact. We need more concerned citizens to help by giving your time and resources to the following programs. I hope this book inspires you with great ideas so you can make a significant impact in the lives of those around you. B. Rice)

Black Americans, We Need You! is written with the hope that the examples and writings within the book will inspire and encourage ordinary African-Americans to step in and help those they can.

Brian K. Rice did a wonderful job of explaining the need and then providing examples of solutions for the each need.
