Black had served his country for four years and displayed loyalty to the Catholic university where he worked for a decade, but in the end his employer chose to let him go rather than honor his service. In Black and Born to Succeed, Black shines a light on issues of employment discrimination, racial discrimination, and the shameful treatment of veterans in the United States.

“The book is about discreet discrimination in employment practices by some of the country’s largest employers, which benefit from government source funds and manipulate the system by means of politics, religion, and capitalism,” Black said.


Black is no stranger to standing up for what he believes is right, as he served in the United States Air Force in the 1970s.racism-circle

“Employment discrimination here in America must end or equal opportunity is just rhetoric,” Black said.

With Black and Born to Succeed, the author hopes to open minds and hearts and end discrimination once and for all.
