On the Right Road to the Promised Land: From Economic Passengers to Economic Drivers is a work of non-fiction in the self-help, sociocultural issues, and economics subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Tony Rogers. This thought-provoking work sheds light on the enduring struggle of black America to achieve economic equality and self-determination. Rogers delves into the history of this issue, exploring the roots of the black/white wealth gap and the attempts made by various entities, including corporate America and government, to address the issue. The author presents a compelling narrative by drawing attention to significant historical moments, such as Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream and the granting of land to freed slaves through Field Order #15. Rogers expertly connects these pivotal moments to the ongoing challenges faced by black Americans in their pursuit of economic empowerment.
Author Tony Rogers' analysis of the lost opportunities and setbacks in the quest for self-determination resonates deeply. Through his meticulous research and comprehensive understanding of history, he highlights the obstacles and systemic forces that have hindered progress, all with a confident but gentle authority that keeps the narrative grounded and emotionally balanced. I found this work to be a powerful call to action, challenging readers to critically examine the factors contributing to the enduring wealth gap and to actively participate in shaping a more equitable society, and I could certainly see it being a must-read in the economics and sociology classrooms alike. Overall, On the Right Road to the Promised Land serves as an important contribution to the dialogue surrounding racial and economic disparities. It is a must-read for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the historical context and contemporary challenges faced by black Americans in their pursuit of economic empowerment and equality, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
