Publisher's Summary

If the name Randal Pinkett sounds familiar, it may be because Pinkett was the first African American winner on The Apprentice. When he won, this black man also became the only contestant to be asked to share his victory - with a white woman. The request (and Pinkett's subsequent refusal) set off a firestorm of controversy that inevitably focused on the issue of race in the American workplace and in society. For generations, African Americans have been told that to succeed, they need to work twice as hard as everyone else. But as millions of black Americans were reminded by Pinkett's experience, sometimes hard work is not enough. 

Black Faces in White Places is about "the game" - that is, the competitive world in which we all live and work. The audiobook offers 10 revolutionary strategies for playing, mastering, and changing the game for the current generation, while undertaking a wholesale redefinition of the rules for those who will follow. It is not only about shattering the old "glass ceiling" but also about examining the four dimensions of the contemporary black experience: identity, society, meritocracy, and opportunity. Ultimately, it is about changing the very concept of success itself. 

Based on the authors' considerable experiences in business, in the public eye, and in the minority, the audiobook shows how African American professionals can (and must) think and act both entrepreneurially and "intrapreneurially", combine their collective strengths with the wisdom of others, and plant the seeds of a positive and lasting legacy.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Phenomenal read for any person of color

Corporate America was never designed for black and brown Americans , if anything the entire premise of it was for us to get a degree, work very hard and never make it to the C-Suite

Well times are thankfully changing (glacially slow) and this book is the best book I have ever read on systematically walking Black and Brown people on how to learn the game, Play the game, dominate the game and ultimately go create you own game in regards to corporate America .

I knew Randall was something special on the 2004 Apprentice finale and watching Donald Trump try to sabotage him on national TV,, and it’s been amazing reading this book and learning from such a great entrepreneur and professional about how I dominate corporate America and go out and start your own business that dominates corporate America

Great advice for everyone

Great advice for people of any race. I found it very helpful and insightful as a white man. I really liked the emphasis on building large, scalable and “triple bottom line” enterprises, not just another small local business.

EXCELLENT EXAMPLE of Our Greatness

Black Faces in White Place is more than a “how to”guide; it is also testament of what it means to be FEARLESS in our service to humanity.

It is definitely a GAME CHANGER in my life as the reader.
