Advance Praise for Black Faces in White Places

“Randal Pinkett and Jeffrey Robinson’s book has much to say about solutions to our challenges in the Age of Obama. Don’t miss it!” — Cornel West, Princeton University

“There are three types of people in this world: those who make the rules, those who follow the rules, and those who redefine the rules. Drs. Pinkett and Robinson have given us a revolutionary roadmap for people of color to accomplish the latter, and to do so in a way that benefits everyone.” — William H. Cosby, Jr., Ed.D., and Camille O. Cosby, Ed.D.

“An intriguing exploration into the personal, professional, and spiritual dimensions of being Black in 21st century America. If you care deeply about the future of our communities and our country, you should care about this book.”— Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO, NAACP

“This book is a ‘must read’ to fully understand the Black experience in any professional setting. Black Faces in White Places takes a look at race and professional accomplishment in post-Obama America. Drs. Pinkett and Robinson interview entrepreneurs, corporate execs, educators, religious and community leaders to identify 10 clear strategies to be successful oneself–and to help others as well.” — Soledad O’Brien, Anchor and Special Correspondent, CNN

“The ‘10 Game-Changing Strategies’ in Black Faces in White Places are so powerful, so compelling, and so simple, it made me wonder why someone didn’t think of them sooner! Thank you, Dr. Pinkett and Dr. Robinson.”— Judge Glenda Hatchett

“Pinkett and Robinson’s ‘10 Game-Changing Strategies’ should be for people of color what Stephen Covey’s ‘7 Habits’ were for highly effective people.” — Roland S. Martin, Analyst, CNN Host, Managing Editor, Washington Watch, TV One Cable Network Senior Analyst, The Tom Joyner Morning Show

“At last, a one-stop resource that addresses the particular issues associated with being a minority within a majority culture. This book could not have come at a better time. Thank you, Drs. Pinkett and Robinson!”— Stephen R. Covey, Bestselling Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families

“At last, a book that isn’t narrowly focused on how to become ‘successful.’ Black Faces in White Places challenges each of us to look beyond our individual agendas and chart a course for ‘greatness’ – a collective agenda of helping others, thus creating a ripple effect that is felt for generations and generations to come.” — Marc H. Morial, President and CEO, National Urban League
