Elevate your game

Dear Friends,

It’s six months until 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!

As we countdown to the book’s release and the launch of our national book tour, we continue to highlight topics that honor the mission and the message of Black Faces in White Places.  Now, in the sixth month leading to the book’s release, we pay tribute to the Big Six  of the American Civil Rights Movement: Martin Luther King, Jr. of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; James Farmer of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE); John Lewis of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC); A. Philip Randolph of the labor movement; Roy Wilkins of the NAACP and Whitney Young of the National Urban League (NUL). These men were integral leaders in the pioneering civil rights organizations at the height of the movement, seeking racial equality and workplace rights.

We consider several of the interviewees in Black Faces to be leaders and advocates in the ongoing movement to level the playing field in 21st century America. This month we profile another interviewee for the book: Wayne Winborne, former Vice-President of Business Diversity Outreach at Prudential Financial and editor of a three-book series on inter-group relations in the U.S.: Research Perspectives; Programs & Organizations; and Seven Promising Practices. He serves on the boards of several local and national non-profit organizations including the National Council for Research on Women and the Asian American Justice Center.

I trust that the groundbreaking efforts of the “Big Six” and people like Wayne are as inspiring to you as they have been, and continue to be, to me.

Peace and blessings,

From Chain Links to Cultural Links

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.

Lalah Hathaway's song "When Your Life Was Low" says: Always remember my friend, the world will change again. And you may have to come back through everywhere you've been. It behooves us all to remember to help those in the present who supported us in the past.


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.
