Having It All

Black Women and the Question of Success
Author:Veronica Chambers

A behind-the-scenes look into the lives of successful middle- and upper-middle class African American women, the groundbreaking HAVING IT ALL? is sure to spark discussions from cocktail parties to boardrooms.
In a single generation, black women have made extraordinary strides academically, professionally, and financially. They’ve entered the workplace at a far greater rate than white women; increased their enrollment in law schools and graduate programs by 120 percent; and many are now running top companies, or in some cases, the country. Isn’t that enough? Not necessarily. With sharp insight, award-winning journalist Veronica Chambers explores the challenges and stereotypes she and other African American women continue to endure, and answers the question most often posed to her: What does success mean for black women?
Twenty-first century black women draw their inspiration from a wide range of sources: Claire Huxtable to Audrey Hepburn, snowboarding to basketball, Gloria Steinem to bell hooks. They choose what they like. Yet they are misunderstood by mainstream America and lack an accurate portrayal in the media of their lives. HAVING IT ALL? interweaves the thoughts and reflections of more than fifty women who occupy this territory. The voices range from Thelma Golden, chief curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, to a Silicon Valley executive, to medical and legal professionals, and stay-at-home “mocha moms.”
Successful black women today want it all: marriage, motherhood, engaging work, and prosperity. The difference is that they come to the table with the strength, courage and wisdom of black women ancestors who-did-it-all, even when they didn’t-have-it-all. What has gone so undocumented by the media is that modern black women are coming up with creative, satisfying answers to the juggling act that all women face.

Leading in Black and White

Series:J-B CCL (Center ro Creative Leadership),#24
Author:Ancella B. Livers , Keith Caver

Many blacks in the workplace face a set of dynamics unique to being African American in a traditionally white, male-dominated world. In this landmark book, authors Ancella Livers and Keith Caver -- co-facilitators of the Center for Creative Leadership's African-American Leadership Program -- explain how leadership experiences for blacks are radically different from those of their white colleagues. These differences, of which most white managers are unaware, can lead to miscues and distortions in communication and ultimately get in the way of effective performance and optimal productivity for organizations. In Leading in Black and White, the authors not only clearly explain how things go wrong, they also provide sensible solutions for both the white manager and the black manager on how to make them right.

The Reckoning

What Blacks Owe to Each Other
Author:Randall N. Robinson

Randall N. Robinson: In my last book, The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks, I argued that only massive American government reparations can begin to repair the devastating economic and psychosocial injury done to blacks in America since 1619 at the hands of, first, the colonial governments, and, later, the American government. But while broad programmatic restitution can insure for African-Americans a future, it cannot salvage a living generation. This, we must do for ourselves.

Pay Yourself First

The African American Guide to Financial Success and Security
Author:Jessie B. Brown (Fowarded by Hugh B. Price)

There are songs about it, everyone wants it, people spend their lives trying to make more of it or trying to make it faster. People say love makes the world go round, but to a great degree it is money that does that, because without it we can't have the necessities of lifeŃ food, clothing, shelter. And if we don't have the necessities, we certainly can't consider acquiring the luxuries! Despite this, most people don't know the rules of the financial road. The fact is that money is both a cause and an effect. It's a solution to most problems, if you have it. If you don't have it, a problem is created.
