Leading While Black:  Challenges of Being an African-American Leader in a White Organization


Anthony J. Harris

Publication Year



Gatekeeper Press


The challenges highlighted in this book – regardless of industry or whether in the public or private sector – are the result of systemic racism that commenced in 1619 and remains alive today. The historical and ongoing dehumanization of Black people, and the public policies and laws that have sustained it, have been responsible for the creation and maintenance of contemporary racism and its many manifestations.
