While a decade of national prosperity has largely left African Americans behind, this book takes a look at the causes of black economic oppression and offers challenging steps to overcome this problem. Rather than relying on a victim's mentality, this book addresses the reasons why African Americans earn over $530 billion, yet spend less than 3 percent with black-owned business. Also discussed are black churches and organizations and their failure to be economic leaders in their communities.
