Overview

Picking Cotton in Corporate America is an inspiring book. It tells the true story of how a young black man with determination, high intelligence, and deeply religious and humane instincts could "beat the system. " He realized that life is full of obstacles and challenges, and that if you give up every time you are faced with a challenge you will never accomplish anything. So he stood up against the system, but there was a price to pay and some very important lessons learned. His story covers the course of the many years of struggle for civil rights. His pioneering efforts in the U. S. Air Force, University of Virginia, and five Fortune 500 corporations helped pave the way for other minorities. Mr. Jones is a model of how the worthy struggle can be fought by the individual against seemingly insuperable odds. He wants to pass it on! Pass on the lessons he learned so that others can benefit from his mistakes and avoid making the same mistakes he made. "This book is valuable beyond measure. Everyone regardless of his or her age will enjoy reading it. "
