"A powerful, engrossing look at race and technology." Kirkus Review


"Powerful... African-American pride and perseverance. Publisher's Weekly


Kirkus and Publisher's Weekly give Think Black stars--their highest rating. Library Journal gives it a thumbs-up! Read the full reviews:

Remember “old school” journalism, where a reporter really dug into it a story? I’m thrilled with the “old school” review that Seattle Times economic columnist, Jon Talton, just gave Think Black. Of course, I’m glad that Jon liked the book but more than that, he really faithfully captured the essence of what I wanted to communicate in his well-written, thoughtful column. 
Read Jon's column.
