Dr. Claud Anderson is founder and president of The Harvest Institute, a think-tank whose mission is the social and economic reform of Black America. A well-known political strategist, businessman, educator and economic development consultant, Dr. Anderson was a former official of the Carter Administration. Black Labor, White Wealth, 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, White Wealth 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.
Praise for Black Labor, White Wealth
“What I like about the book is Anderson’s search for solutions. He offers practical courses of action that blacks can take to become politically and economically competitive in America.” –Dorothy Gilliam, The Washington Post
“Dr. Anderson…methodically outlines and articulates strategies for Blacks to become a self-empowered people in America despite the obvious injustices imposed on them throughout much of their history in this country.” –William L. Clay, Member of Congress
“A historical analysis and a financial blueprint for the future of Black economic empowerment.”
“Before Republicans kill affirmative action, they should read a new book by historian Claud Anderson, Black Labor, White Wealth. It shows how white wealth in the USA was developed by black labor and is maintained by preferential treatment for whites.” –Barbara Reynolds, USA Today
“Dr. Anderson examines the methods whites used to gain power, but more importantly, he provides examples of ways black can adopt some of those same methods to build wealth and power for themselves. Black Labor, White Wealth is provocative and powerful!” –Tony Brown, Tony Brown’s Journal
“Similar to W.E.B. Dubois and the best of the 20th century.” —Detroit Free Press
