  • In Black Entrepreneurs in America, Woodard lets us hear for the first time from many on the front lines of the American marketplace. Woodard begins the book with a summary of two hundred years of Black entrepreneurship in America, and then offers a lucid analysis of contemporary theories of Black business. Through in-depth interviews with twelve entrepreneurs, Woodard provides a powerful record of entrepreneurial vitality in a market that is often hostile and exclusive
  • Woodard covers businesses from across the United States representing diverse industries, including paper distribution, office furniture, computer management, construction, chemicals, ship building, communications, and systems engineering. Each business has a minimum gross revenue of $1 million per year and from ten to over two hundred employees. These twelve interviews make up the heart of the book, as Black entrepreneurs talk frankly about business challenges,
  • opportunities, and issues of community involvement. Woodard ends on a practical note with resources and advice for anyone contemplating an entrepreneurial future
