Requirements for Economic Empowerment
Funding African Centered Education
Ironically, I doubt anyone writes a book about Black economic development actually expecting the book to be economically successful. However, a portion of any profits, however meager, that are made from the sale of this book or any consulting work that comes from it will go towards The Black Travel Foundation, an African Centered non-profit that helps reconnect Black youth to their African roots through cultural immersion and rights of passage programs in Africa and the Caribbean.
