This review is from: The African American Entrepreneur: Then and Now (Hardcover)
I have read numerous books on entrepreneurship and how to start a small business. Most of the books out there rehash the same mantras, but this book is different. This book is an inspiring read for future entrepreneurs, and it can and should be a mandatory reading for any business class dealing with the issue surrounding black entrepreneurship/business in America. This book gives a short but concise analysis of cases, statutes, and social/political dispositions that has either hindered or encouraged black entrepreneurship. It is thoroughly researched and cited so that a one can explore the subject in more detail in the future. We often forget (or fail to admit) the legal battles that was/is perpetuated on blacks in economic arena. Prof. Rogers' book is that reminder, but also the encourager to move beyond those barriers. Did I forget that he also includes a "blueprint" on how and why one should move pass those barriers?
