"Blacks and Poverty” (published by AuthorHouse) is Raymond L. Chukwu’s analysis of the black community’s failure to embrace and benefit from the technological revolution, seriously analyzing this topic and offering suggestions for change. According to Chukwu, one reason black people are mired in poverty is because they have not harnessed the promise of economic stability offered by the fields of science, technology and medicine.

“Blacks and Poverty” delivers the hard-hitting evidence to explain why blacks disproportionately suffer from limited access to technology, poor health and inadequate professional health care treatment in the United States and throughout the world. Chukwu, former Republican candidate for Congress and a candidate to be the US ambassador to Nigeria, is an aerospace engineer and president of Black Technologies Advancement.

“No one ever makes the connection of Black's poverty with their limited participation in science or technology related profession,” Chukwu on why he writes this book. “Black people do not have any market share because they not manufacture or design any science or technology related products.”

As he presents the need for changes, the author urges the people to, “Embrace and benefit from the technological revolution.”
