The Search For Power And Economic Justice.
Black Labor White Wealth: The Search For Power And Economic Justice, Dr. Claud Anderson's first book, now a classic. From slavery and Jim Crow public policies that used black labor to construct a superpower nation. It breakdowns how black people were socially engineered into the lowest level of a real life Monopoly game, which they are neither playing or winning. Black Labor is a comprehensive analysis of the issues of race. Dr. Anderson uses the anaylsis in this book to offer solutions to America's race problem.
Dr. Claud Anderson is a successful author who has popularised Black history and is widely recognised as one of America's most influential intellectuals. He has drawn the nation's attention to the issue of race and the advantages of redeveloping and industrialising black communities. Dr. Anderson has a broad and varied base of experiences spanning education, business, national and state politics and successful economic and social reform.
Dr. Anderson has developed the popular concept of PowerNomics, a set of social-political and economic strategies based upon his analysis of the race problem as described in Black Labor.
Review - "This book is truly an eye opener. By reading his material, I learned more contextual information about the historical struggles of black Americans than I ever did throughout my 16+ years in school. It is a shame how much our history classes have whitewashed the black narrative.
Hence, I believe it should be required that all black individuals, young & old, read this book to genuinely grasp the intricacies of how institutionalised oppression has impacted our communities.
Furthermore, this book is a must read for black Americans simply because the author gives us a solid blueprint on how we can improve our condition within society; his ideas are well-thought-out as he discusses strategies of focusing more on capitalism and group economics rather than chasing the elusive dream of "integration". Dr. Anderson's work is highly recommended and deserves a 5 star rating".
