The Black Man's Guide to Working in a White Man's World
Organized by: Eugene Lathan
I am looking to republish my book, The Black Man's Guide to Working in a White Man's World, and share my story of being an American Dream success. It states my thoughts, ideas and lessons to my son on being a good citizen and navigating his way through the working world as I did to be successful. My American Dream is being a hard working contributing member of the American middle class. Some of us will achieve the dream of being a millionaire, some of us will achieve greatness in science, math or in civil situations, but for most of us success will be achieved through attaining the American Dream and being a part of the middle-class of the US. We'll own our home and cars, raise our children, work hard and retire to live out our golden years in peace knowing we have given some back to society and taught our children to be good citizens. This is my message to black people to join in concert and make life come alive for ourselves by studying how the white man achieved his success and making it work for us. Pretty simple, just hard work and dedication. I am hoping to raise this sum to fund the efforts to republish my original work from 1997. Our community has lost ground over the past decade and we need to look forward and help ourselves out of this hole. No one can help us but us, and it needs to start right now. I think I have a small part to offer in helping us achieve that American Dream. Hope you can find it in yourself to contribute. And if you are not able to contribute monetarily then help one child near you to see a better way in their future. Thanks for reading and in advance thanks for your help.
