Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Many members of the black community will be familiar with Kunjufu because of his tireless efforts in promoting his nine previous books, such as the three-volume Countering the Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys (African American Images, 1983, 1986, 1990), and his ideas. Kunjufu has degrees in economics and business, his company (the book's publisher) employs 100 people, and he tours the country giving lectures and interviews. Well researched and containing minimal business jargon, his book makes business concepts easily understandable without condescension to the lay reader. It then gives a clear call to action for blacks to join together to improve the lot of the average African American. While most of the ideas have been bandied about in African American circles for years, this is the most comprehensive, compelling, and clearly worded effort this reviewer has read. Recommended for all public libraries.

Format: Paperback
One of the most memorable points made here is about the benefit of using a "sales job" for large commission dollars and then, using that money to start your own business. Thank you Brother Kunjufu!!!

Format: Paperback
I am a woman with epilepsy who found much of the information in this book applicable to other historically marginalized groups who are not necessarily black.

Independent economic development is the key to community revitalization and political success in a capitalist society. Those with the most money are the same ones who can decide and then access the elected officials in their community. And a community with ample economic opportunity for people is not going to have drug use and other forms of crime polluting the area, people are going to have stuff to do with their time and the means to support themselves/families.

But that development can never happen when we behave disrespectfully towards the customer who has entered our store. Anybody running a business must act like they genuinely want to make a profit off of it--in order to get their wish of a sale. Nobody is going to come in and realistically hand us lots of money simply because we are one of them.

The book is intended to be used by people who are already out working in the 'real world'. But it would also work as a text in economics classes. Come to think of it, it could even be used in social science and/or public policy courses, particularly those dealing with community redevelopment and urban groups.

Dr. Kunjufu lays it out in this book. He discusses the history of African-American businesses, the obstacles, and solutions for personal and community empowerment.

This is an excellent book to read on the topic of Black economics and community empowerment in a small package, (book) such as this book. Dr. Kunjufu hits the ball out of the park for the reader to get a quick down and dirty knowledge on Black economic and community development as to what the Black community needs to do for itself. It should get more into the failure of Black leadership that are BSing the community or should I say 'Pimping' off the communities they say they support.
