RACE FOR THE NET
The Untold Story
Did you know that at one time, African Americans controlled one of the most critical technologies of the 20th and 21st centuries, ultimately contributing more than $7 trillion to today’s global economy? This amazing technology is the Internet. Very few people know that an African American business created the access platform to enable the world to utilize it. Today, more than half of the world's population of 4.2 billion are users of the Internet, and the number is growing.
Now you can read the fantastic story of how this African American company accomplished this historical task in 1993. And why they relinquished their rights to this technology, thus limiting the African American community from benefiting economically today. In the book RACE FOR THE NET- When African Americans Controlled the Internet and What happens Now? By Albert E.
White, you will discover the facts about this incredible story. The author was directly involved in marketing and promoting the use of this technology before the public really knew of the vast potential of the Internet. In the chapter “Selling An invisible Concept,” he explains the extreme difficulty at that time of getting people to understand the expansive potential of Internet technology.
The author also provides a “roadmap” in his book on how the African American community can be empowered today and in the future through opportunities on the Internet. This includes a discussion of future business and job opportunities as a result of new Internet technologies.
No other entity in the world can claim to be the first to introduce the Internet to the world. You need to read, save, and share this keepsake book depicting one of the great accomplishments of an African American company and its contribution to global society.
