Black Faces in White Places is about “the game”— that is, the competitive world in which we all live and work. Based on interviews with dozens of prominent

African-Americans and the authors’ considerable experiences in business, in the public eye, and in the minority, the book offers 10 revolutionary “game-changing strategies” for learning, playing, mastering, and redefining 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.
