Elevate your game

Dear Friends,

Perhaps you’ve noticed that we took a short break from publishing the “Elevate Your Game” e-Newsletter and are wondering why?  Well, the answer is that we have been gearing up for the October 2010 release of my forthcoming book, Black Faces in White Places: 10 Game-Changing Strategies to Achieve Success and Find Greatness, co-written by Dr. Jeffrey Robinson with Philana Patterson!  This will be the long anticipated release of a project I have worked tirelessly on for the past five years!

Some of you reading this e-Newsletter may know, first-hand, exactly what it means to be a “Black face in a white place,” or a “minority,” while others may have indirect experience with these dynamics.  My goal for each e-Newsletter is to offer something for everyone – regardless of their background – that will (hopefully) enlighten and expand their horizons. While this is my first book geared toward African Americans and people of color, the 10 game-changing strategies found in Black Faces in White Places are universally applicable to all.

Over the next seven months, as we countdown to the book’s public release and the launch of our national book tour, each e-Newsletter will highlight content and other related topics that honor the mission and the message of Black Faces in White Places.  This will include brief portraits of milestone moments in Black history corresponding to each month.  Here, in the seventh month leading to the book’s release, we pay tribute to the seven million slaves brought to the New World from Africa against their will.  Each month, we will also profile individuals from among the dozens of interviewees for the book, which include Angela Glover-Blackwell, Roland Martin, Majora Carter, Cory Booker, Benjamin Jealous, Deborah Elam, Kevin Powell, Dr. Cheryl Dorsey, Jeff Johnson, Dr. Treena Arinzeh, and Don Thompson.  This month we profile actor, author, and activist, Hill Harper.

I hope you enjoy this month’s installment and also share my excitement as we countdown to October 2010 when Black Faces in White Places will finally hit bookstores across the country and on the Internet!

Peace and blessings,

In recognition of South Asian and Asian Pacific Heritage Month, we highlight Bill Imada and his bold editorial on what Asian-Americans can do to support the African-American community. He recognizes “Americans of African heritage that have crossed the ethnic divide to help people in [the Asian-American] community advance, grow and prosper,” such as Wayne Winborne, former VP of Business Diversity Outreach at Prudential Financial, who serves on the Asian American Justice Center Board of Directors. Imada argues that black Americans have been ambassadors and advocates for Asian-Americans, their institutions and causes, and he challenges his community to pay it forward through mentorship and by being fully engaged in the struggle for inclusion and diversity.

Black Faces in White Places
Black Faces in White Places: 10 Game-Changing Strategies to Achieve Success and Find Greatness offers ten revolutionary strategies for learning, playing, and changing “the game”--that is, the world in which we all live and work--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 reconsidering the four dimensions of the black experience: identity, society, meritocracy, and opportunity. Ultimately, it may be about changing the very concept of success itself.
