If the name Randal Pinkett sounds familiar, it may be because Pinkett was the first African-American winner on The Apprentice. When he won, this black man also became the only contestant to be asked to share his victory-with a white woman. The request (and Pinkett’s subsequent refusal) set off a firestorm of controversy that inevitably focused on the issue of race in the American workplace and in society. Dr. Gee discusses the book “Black Faces In White Places” with the authors, Dr. Randal Pinkett And Dr. Jeffrey Robinson.
