“This book is improving personal and professional perceptions of the African-American consumer. Miller offers a deeper and more intimate look at the evolving concept of what it means to be Black, creating a mosaic picture of Black America where many marketers are not fully aware of.”

Through an honest discussion, Miller walks you towards a better understanding of how Black still Matters. You’ll be introduced to honest insights into Black America, filling in the gaps that many corporations have about Black America. Miller offers a deeper and more intimate look at the evolving concept of what it means to be Black, creating a mosaic picture of Black America where many marketers are not fully aware of, with insights like:

• As Millennials age and experience the “real world”, many are re-evaluating the relation between their identity and culture with the idea of being successful.
• The Digital Divide is finally diminishing, as Blacks are catching up with Caucasians in online access and surpassing them in mobile computing.
• The Internet is not necessarily “the equalizer”.  There are countless successful new media platforms created by Blacks for Blacks in support of the strong and powerful Black social network and Black blogosphere, yet are under many marketers’ radar.
