Publisher's Summary

Striving While Black is a personal reflection, a playbook and a portable mentor for African-Americans and others who didn't and don't have the advantage of trailblazers who have gone before them in forging a successful corporate career. Success in corporate America is based on not only what you know - but, as importantly, who you know and who will sponsor you, share information with you as well as advocate for you. This book shares in a straight talking manner what those who feel marginalized in corporate need to do for themselves to be seen as competitive and value added.

Used kwame’s guidance with success

I found myself saying, WOW someone has walked this path and documented a strategy on how to counter the adversity. I was truly frustrated in my corporate climb and decided what the hay! I tried a concept that led to another use of one Kwame's well-articulated concept then found myself referring back to sections for additional guidance. Truly insightful, this manual was crafted for our situations. All I can say is Thank you! Extreme gratitude, I am now at the VP level and I'm just getting started for my next chapter!

Excellent Read!!!

This book is an invaluable guide to those blacks, young and old, who striving for a successful career in any organization or field of endeavor, but especially in those where they are in the minority. I think any person who is an outsider can benefit from reading this book. Just substitute "female, or, latino, or gay, or non-Judeo Christian for black in the phrase "Striving While..." and it can help anybody. I only wish it were longer. I can't wait for the audio version of "Black Over White" to come out.

Too short!!

I loved the content but the chapters were way too short. I don't know why or how this was made into a book. It could of been a pamphlet!!

Thank you Mr. Salters for insight on how ones perception, stereotypes, prejudices, unconscious, conscious and my behaviors and create opportunities and dispell myths or conclusions of who I, the individual is.
