Overview

'I Love Black People! I Just Can't Help It.' 'A Love Letter to Black People: Audaciously Hopeful Thoughts on Race and Success' by Brian McClellan is a book sure to challenge and inspire those who have this type of deep affection for the Black community but also deep concerns for its future. Inspired in part by the historic political success of Senator Barack Obama, 'Love Letter' explores the unique way high achieving African Americans view race and success and why, for the love of the Black community, all Black people must apply these lessons. The insightfulness of McClellan's discussion in 'Love Letter' is bolstered by a supporting survey about race and success completed by more than 100 young, Black business and community leaders. Their opinions regarding provocative racially charged topics such as 'acting white' are inspirational, thought-provoking and sometimes more provocative than the questions themselves. 'Love Letter' is a must read for those who love Black people and just can't help it!

Inspiring¿
Brian McClellan brings his personal experiences to his book, A Love Letter To Black People. The purpose behind this book is to encourage and inspire Blacks everywhere. The election of Barack Obama to the office of President of the United States broke the ¿glass ceiling¿ that seemed to hold many people back, according to McClellan. McClellan includes interviews with over 100 successful Black leaders.
A Love Letter To Black People is well written and interesting.
