Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Author tour to include Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Baltimore, and Atlanta
Library Journal
Many members of the black community will be familiar with Kunjufu because of his tireless efforts in promoting his nine previous books, such as the three-volume Countering the Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys (African American Images, 1983, 1986, 1990), and his ideas. Kunjufu has degrees in economics and business, his company (the book's publisher) employs 100 people, and he tours the country giving lectures and interviews. Well researched and containing minimal business jargon, his book makes business concepts easily understandable without condescension to the lay reader. It then gives a clear call to action for blacks to join together to improve the lot of the average African American. While most of the ideas have been bandied about in African American circles for years, this is the most comprehensive, compelling, and clearly worded effort this reviewer has read. Recommended for all public libraries.-- Anita L. Cole, Miami-Dade P.L. System, Fla.
