Make America Hope Again: A Plan to Win in Diversity & Inclusion for Corporate America by Norman P. Fleming is a nonfiction book that examines one of the ills that plague American society, a perennial question that has baffled minds through the passing centuries — the question of the color line. In this book, the author shares his experience in the corporate world and shows readers the divide, the injustices people suffer because of the shade of their skin, and the uncertainty and discrimination when it comes to creating space for growth for colored employees. The narrative begins in 2008 when Norman is interviewed for the first time and hired as a field service account coordinator, and spans a period of ten years until 2017, with him holding different positions.

In this book, the author discusses race issues that are widespread across the country and at every stage in corporate life, from recruiting to developing and training people of color in US corporations. The book questions the place of diversity and inclusion, and challenges top level management professionals to develop a new approach to defining the American identity, and to transform diversity into an opportunity for growth and development. Norman P. Fleming writes with unalloyed honesty, allowing readers to feel the racial yoke he bore for years, unveiling his fears and uncertainty in a white dominated world.

Many readers will undoubtedly relate to his experiences and these should serve as eye-openers to those who hold the power to make a difference in corporate life. Some of the stories are very educative and encouraging for young people moving into corporate life. Make America Hope Again: A Plan to Win in Diversity & Inclusion for Corporate America is written in an accessible style and it explores the sentiment of people of color in a world that preaches racial inclusion and tolerance. It’s at times raw and ruthlessly honest, at times thought-provoking, and utterly revealing of the cultural and social realities in the country; a timely message for a better America.
