by Pepper Miller and Herb Kemp

Pepper Miller is the 2007 MAXX award winner for Research Executive of the Year. This award, given by Target Market News, recognizes Marketing to African Americans with Excellence (MAAX). The program annually honors the contributions, innovations and exceptional performance of African American professionals in the fields of marketing, advertising, media and consumer research.

African Americans have more influence on today's culture and taste than any other ethnic group in the world. What's Black About It? offers a fresh perspective on changing the views of corporate America and how they market to the African-American consumer. This book presents historical, psychological, and cultural influences that delve far deeper into the Black experience than other ethnic marketing books which may only include a general chapter or two on Black consumers. What's Black About It? proposes "staying in the black" and reveals the cultural buttons that fuel effective marketing to African-Americans.

Pepper Miller and Herb Kemp are expert marketers based in Chicago and Connecticut, respectively, and have completed over 30,000 quantitative and qualitative interviews with African Americans -- including marketing executives, scholars, and community influencers. Since the recent launch of "What's Black About It?" the authors have been interviewed on numerous radio programs and are in constant demand to present at national market meetings and at Fortune 500 companies as well. This book explores with Miller and Kemp the ever evolving cultural complexities of African-American consumers today.
