Elevate your game

Dear Friends,

Jacket_BFWPSeason’s greetings and happy holidays!  As the year comes to an end, the word is getting out about Black Faces in White Places: 10 Game-Changing Strategies to Achieve Success and Find Greatness.  Thus far the feedback and reviews have been outstanding!  However, over the course of my recent book signings and appearances, one thing has stood out: the noticeable number of people who read the title and misunderstand the book’s content.  To dispel a few myths, and in the festive spirit of the holidays, I’ve made a list – a POP Quiz – and I’ve checked it twice.  I want to find out who is naughty or nice!

After reviewing the answers to the POP Quiz below, please consider making Black Faces in White Places a last-minute gift for the holidays.  Order here before it’s too late and stay tuned for the official launch of the book’s national tour, campaign, and website (RedefineTheGame.com) in 2011.  In the meantime, please accept my best wishes to you and your loved ones for a safe and prosperous holiday season and New Year!

Peace and blessings,

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.
