MINORITY TECH
Journaling Through Blackness and Technology
by Anjuan Simmons

How does the African American experience intersect with solving the severe lack of diversity in the technology sector? Anjuan Simmons explores the answer to this question in MINORITY TECH: Journaling Through Blackness and Technology (Amazon Kindle Edition; $9.99; July 28, 2013). The book is an essay anthology of the author's online and print works organized around the themes of Blackness, technology, diversity, and our collective humanity.

Using logic, humor, and an unflinching willingness to engage in tough conversations about race in America, Anjuan tackles perceptions of Blackness in America, the need for a Code of Conduct for Black men, the value of affirmative action, and the impact of the first African American to ascend to the White House on the Black psyche.

Whether the reader is Black, Latino, female, disabled, or a member of other underrepresented groups in technology, MINORITY TECH will serve as a familiar account of what it’s like to conflict with the majority demographic in technology. However, the author makes the case that the conflict is worth navigating, and, indeed, is crucial to the economic success of historically disadvantaged groups.
