Shelves: entrepreneur , financial Very good and informative about economic conditions in the African American community. He makes an encouraging argument of why as a community we should put economic empowerment before political empowerment. He has lots of ideas and suggestions for how this can be done based on much statistical information and historical facts. The book was published in , so numbers and calculations he makes are out-of-date, so just adjust for inflation. Kunjufu is spot on Very good and informative about economic conditions in the African American community.
Kunjufu is spot on about many issues and attitudes that hold African-American back economically. I enjoyed reading his analysis of the situation. He even touches on the idea of reparations, even though, far-fetched, he makes a great argument for it.
My only drawback was the way that he ended the book in the last chapter, with the fictional meeting of his chosen leaders. Perhaps it also served as a review of the info. Still a great book if you like reading on topics related to finances and economics or if you are an entrepreneur.
I was introduced to some great ideas here that I plan to build on. It helps to gain an understanding as to why POC do not flourish like we should in economics. May 09, Frederick Amadi rated it really liked it This book did a great job of providing possible solutions to problems the black community faces economically.
Kunjufu delves into various tactics we can use as a people to improve our financial resources and claim more power for ourselves. There are many sad and depressing points that he brings to the readers attention, because many of these issues STILL exist to this very day. But hopefully as more and more African Americans read and spread the knowledge, things will improve for the better.
This book did a great job of providing possible solutions to problems the black community faces economically.
