    Black to the future: From the Plantation to the Corporation will open your eyes to the discriminatory practices employed by giant corporations. Most of us will have heard stories, but this is not written second-hand the author lived through such practices, saw first-hand how systems are set up to keep a group of people back. You will live through the Racial Discrimination Lawsuit that he participated in and learn how lawyers can make a killing, as it were, off such cases. He tells of the employees who had worked at the company for many years, seemingly taking the discrimination and doing nothing. He points out that most of these employees were from `the islands¿ and put down `other¿ instead of Black. I do not understand how anyone could consider himself to be `other¿ when they are Black, but in the case of the ones who seemingly `did nothing¿, I disagree slightly with the author: you cannot always judge when you do not know a person¿s circumstance. The author contends that Blacks 'especially the so-called 'house negroes'' are as much to blame for their plight because they do not band together and support one another, and that the so-called Black leaders are ineffectual! Hopefully it will cause Blacks to take a good look at themselves and those they consider their leaders, and spark some kind of dialogue. The Black inventions and inventors listed in the book is astounding, and I agree with the author that this should be a part of the curriculum, for all students, not just Blacks. Black to the Future: From the Plantation to the Corporation is a well-written, eye-opening book. You will learn about the many contributions Blacks have made to this society. Hopefully, this will cause Whites to shift their view somewhat of Blacks, and engender a sense of pride in Blacks, especially the younger generation.
