Overview

Black and Green is a call to action for the Black community to join the green movement. The book offers insights, ideas, and strategies that demonstrate how Black people can benefit from this movement and also fuel the go-green effort. Ali builds on the premise that the call to "go green" has not quite resonated in the Black community and discusses several reasons as to why. Ultimately, he offers tangible benefits that Black colleges, churches, and even cities should be eager to embrace. These include better health, neighborhood crime reduction, and new jobs. This book clearly broadens the "go green" discussion to include the Black community in a way that is both compelling and engaging.

Lester R. Brown
A book from the heart and for the heart of the Black community. Make sure everyone you know reads this compelling book about saving the planet.
Pepper Miller
A marketer's gold mine! Ali combines an entertaining, yet skillful approach of connecting Black-American cultural insights with smart, well thought-out strategies, and examples to help increase Green Movement Participation among both Black and mainstream audiences....A must read for our planet and effective marketing!
Tyrone Powers Ph.D.
The further we get away from nature the more troubles we encounter in health and education. Going green will be returning to our natural instincts. Clearly Jamal Ali understands this and has expressed it as it has never been expressed or explained before. This is a must read.
Pamela Daniels-Halisi
Jamal Ali has provided an essential framework of how we can tackle this issue with the assistance of all communities in a sustainable and practical way.
