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. Review "similar to W.E.B. Dubois and the best of the 20th century." -- Detroit Free Press "the second Bible for black Americans." -- Jet Magazine
