Black Labor, White Wealth
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 anaylsis in this book to offer solutions to America’s race problem.
Some areas are very much focused on the US experience, but there is enough global context to satisfy readers from other areas of the diaspora.
I’d recommend this read for any one interested in black history and seeking to understand the current unique economic situation of black people
