Dr. Anderson's first book is a classic. It tracks slavery and Jim Crow public policies that used black labor to construct a superpower nation. It details how black people were socially engineered into the lowest level of a real life Monopoly game, which they are neither playing or winning. Black Labor is a comprehensive analysis of the issues of race. Dr. Anderson uses the ...more

Very truthful. Mr Anderson speaks about the economical dillema that black people are faced with currently. I'll post more at a later date. Later!!

I don't concur with every conclusion Dr. Anderson makes in the book, but his overall analysis cannot be denied - that enough White wealth has been generated consistently, time and again, from the ingenuity, creativity, and hard work of Black peoples in this country, and further, that laws and social paradigms were implemented in the Americas with the express purpose of preventing Black peoples from benefiting and prospering from their own ingenuity.

Anderson does not ask any Black alive today to

It was phenomenal. It opened my eyes to seeing some things in a new way, such as the idea that the abolition movement failed because slavery wasn't to be battled as a moral issue but an economic one. And due to this failure, they actually helped perpetuate the very institution they supposedly sought to destroy.

Good informative book that sheds insight on how wealth was established by some and the relationship of those who work and those who profit from the labor of others.

This book severly proves that black america needs reparations for slavery. From this book i learned how profitable slavery was for white america. it goes into detail from slavery to post slavery, to jim crowism, to a solution that the author offers in the end to even up the odds stacked against African americans in a capitolistic society after slavery.
This by far is one of the best books I've read and I couldn't stop highlighting passages. I wish some of our entertainers would read this and combine their money and resources to start building Black communities throughout this country.
Informative Book that explained the history behind the wealth gap that Black people find themselves in today.
