Overview

The Tried and True Road to Success...Hard work and solid ethics may be old-fashioned...but they're indispensable to success in life. Succeeding While Black draws attention to and provides solutions for many of the issues facing African-Americans. Many young African-American men will find themselves in prison, in gangs, and on the streets without opportunities to succeed. African-American children still trail behind other ethnicities in almost every academic statistical category in America. By sharing his own story and personal struggles, author Matt Dayton debunks the myth of a challenging early life inevitably resulting in failure, and candidly shares his journey of changed focus and better decisions. Drawing on a lifetime of mentoring and leadership, Matt provides the building blocks to success-from appearance to attitude-in an accessible voice that will appeal to all readers. If you are working with African-American youth, this book is a must-have.
