This once-in-a-generation book embodies stories and experiences shared by the author — K. Braeden Anderson — a former high-major NCAA athlete who overcame childhood abuse, homelessness, and severe racism to become an attorney at the world's largest law firm and a successful entrepreneur.
Anderson made headlines in 2020 for earning a law degree while playing Division I basketball. "Black Resilience" embodies conversations his conversations with Black mentees, friends, bosses, and peers over the course of his career and his life.
"The fact is, despite the powerful message of #BlackLivesMatter and the verbal assurance accompanying it, many Black people are still frustrated. Many of us are cynical, and tired of feeling helpless," Anderson says. "The ultimate message of the book is that we — Black people — have the power to effect positive change in our lives and our communities."
"Black Resilience" teaches valuable lessons such as:
• How to be resilient.
• Why celebrating Black excellence is key.
• The dangers of too much attention on victimhood.
• How to win friends using tact.
• Why overcoming learned helplessness starts with gratitude.
"The Black community is tired of the mainstream narrative about racism," Anderson says. "For some, my advice will not be acceptable, and I want them to know that is totally okay. But there has to be a way that we are not pre-judged, and we need to focus on what we can personally control and then execute with regard to change."
Black Resilience empowers and equips the reader with the strategy to win against any odds and triumph in the face of life's greatest challenges.
