Build A Productive & Healthy Black America

Know Your History & Empower Your Future

Black Labor, White Wealth: The Search for Power and Economic Justice
Dr. Anderson’s first book is a classic. It tracks slavery and Jim Crow public policies that used black labor to construct a superpower nation. It details 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. [More]

bookcover

PowerNomics® is also a new concept, developed by Dr. Anderson, to examine race and to explain it to those who seek truth, from an unvarnished historical perspective. Race is a difficult issue to examine and usually invokes political correctness, emotion and personal anecdotes. PowerNomics is factual and based on an analysis of history. In PowerNomics, Dr. Anderson teaches how to practice capitalism in our society that is based on capitalism. He offers Black America specific principles, strategies and activities to use to own and control resources, to produce group wealth, become more self-sufficient and economically competitive, to change behavior and to establish systems of accountability. Dr. Anderson’s books, DVDs, CDs and lectures are totally unlike any other books you have ever read. You will not be the same after you read them. He makes the history of the United States come alive.

One of the books that has appeared on the Top 10 list of banned books, compiled by the American Library Association, for each of the last 5 years is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. This is a young adult novel (as so many of the books on these lists are) about a teenage Native American boy who chooses to attend school outside his home on the reservation. This decision leaves Junior, or Arnold as he’s called off the reservation, shunned by his people, as well as trying to fit in and on the outskirts of his new community. It is an honest portrayal of his life in high school – girls, bullies, fights, sports, and parents. Junior must learn to cope with a lot of loss in his family and embrace what’s good in his life.

Julie thoroughly enjoyed this collection: “McCracken explores the unexpected avenues of loss in this absorbing new collection. What I love about McCracken is knowing that the characters I meet on her pages will never be typical. I come again and again to the little girl dressed as Patrick…
