About the Author:

Dr. Claud Anderson is a successful author who has popularized Black history and is widely recognized as one of America's most influential intellectuals. He has drawn the nation's attention to the issue of race and the advantages of redeveloping and industrializing black communities. Dr. Anderson has a broad and varied base of experiences spanning education, business, national and state politics and successful economic and social reform. Dr. Anderson is currently president of the Harvest Institute, a black think tank. Appointed by President Jimmy Carter to head the Coastal Plains Regional Commission, Dr. Anderson funded and directed economic development activities for governors in the Southeastern states. He was executive director for two economic development corporations in Miami, Florida. As special assistant to the 1988 Democratic Convention, he awarded 37% of the contracts to blacks, a record that has not been reached or broken. During integration, he served as State Coordinator of Education of the state of Florida under Governor Reubin Askew.

Dr. Anderson has developed the concept of PowerNomics, a set of social-political and economic strategies based upon his analysis of the race problem as described in Black Labor. PowerNomics is designed as a solution to the nation's race problems and to help make Black America more self-sufficient and competitive as a group. He is also involved in several projects to redevelop inner cities according to PowerNomics strategies.
