About Author

Meet Bryant W. Holt

Bryant W. Holt grew up in the American foster care system. As a child, he found solace in art and learning. He was an artistically talented child who learned to play percussion instruments by ear.

Bryant attended Redford High School in Detroit, Michigan, where he grew up in the foster care system. Later, he received an Associate of Science from Wayne County Community College, a Bachelor of Business Administration from Olivet Nazarene University, and a Master of Science from Columbia University of the City of New York.

Starting his career in 1979, he worked in numerous corporate areas, including research and development, supply chain management, logistics and distribution, public relations, aviation, and others. He encountered several forms of racial prejudice and social adversity throughout his career.


His position in public services

His position in public services further afforded him the opportunity to meet with the underrepresented community in numerous working poor areas, expanding his understanding of the realities of marginalized groups in America.

He led corporate teams in North America, Beijing, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Japan, Brazil, and Japan. Over the years, exposure to different cultures inspired him and made him recognize how fractured the American community is compared to others. It was at this juncture that he began to reconsider his political beliefs and created his manifesto to alter the narrative of Black people.

Bryant’s unique perspective and personal experiences motivated him to write African American Reparations – a book that explores themes of African American identity, reparations, and resilience. He utilized his formal education in the sciences and business and his practical experiences to develop an approach to leadership, organization, and improvement. In his book, he documents his ideas on how African Americans can transcend their position, encouraging a shift from the victim mentality to empowerment.

While Bryant leaves it up to the reader to determine the legitimacy and value of his white paper, he emphasizes that effective reparations will remain an unfulfilled dream unless African Americans embrace responsibility and accountability for their own self-determination.
