I have often been asked why there is a need to publish a directory primarily designed for the black community. Many of the inquisitors, both black and white, have commented that this kind of publication can be interpreted as reserve discrimination or promotion of separatism. Neither of those concepts could be further from the truth.
I know that I am not the only person who thinks and speaks about the power of information. Information is the product that one uses to engage in the thought process, which ultimately results in making a purchase or a service decision.
The mission of this publication is to enhance the social, educational and economic status of the black community through information. Let’s consider the mission for a moment and correlate how it is achieved in this publication.
