Dr ANDERSON 1
Dr. Claude Anderson, noted forensic historian,
has a matchless reputation for critically analysing the social economic dilemma of Black America. The rare combination of his life experiences has given him authority to make the recommendations he does in his books, to help Black America become self-sufficient and competitive. And he has devoted his life to doing just that. It is this background and his independent thinking and research that forms the foundation from which he has written five books and developed the strategies he offered to Black America.
