Black Faces in White Places: Becoming a Game Changer in a Competitive World

Randal D. Pinkett, PhD, MBA, and leaders in philanthropy, education, community building, and social entrepreneurship gathered earlier this year to discuss strategies for Black men and boys to "redefine the game" at work, at home, and in their communities.   Here is a video of the entire event:

The event was hosted by the Open Society Campaign for Black Male Achievement, in partnership with the Association of Black Foundation Executives, the 21st Century Foundation and the Schott Foundation for Public Education Black Male Donor Collaborative.

In their book Black Faces in White Places, authors Randal D. Pinkett and Jeffrey Robinson seek to answer the question "What happens once you break past the glass ceiling?" 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 "game-changing strategies" for learning, playing, mastering, and redefining the game for the current generation. Ultimately, it is about changing the very concept of success itself.
