He is the founder and president of African American Images, a Chicago -based publishing company that sponsors dozens of workshops intended to help educators and parents develop practical solutions to the problems of child-rearing in what he perceives to be a racist society. Kunjufu holds advanced degrees in business and economics that have enabled him to place the problems of black society in the larger context of national and international economic models.

Born on June 15, , in Chicago, Kunjufu—who adopted a Swahili name in —credits his parents, Eddie and Mary Brown, with affording him the encouragement, discipline, and stability that would later become the core of his program for the renewal of black society.

As a young man, Kunjufu was urged by his father to volunteer his time at a number of different jobs, working without pay in exchange for learning firsthand how businesses and skilled craftsmen went about their work. Kunjufu attended Illinois State University at Normal and received a bachelor of science degree in economics in Ten years later he finished a doctorate in business administration at Union Graduate School.

Despite his formal training in business, Kunjufu was early on fascinated—and appalled—by the educational system for black students in America, and from onward he began delivering lectures and workshops treating the problems facing black educators. His presentations were well received, and Kunjufu eventually decided to make educational consulting his career; in he founded a publishing and consulting company in Chicago called African American Images.

Kunjufu sees black males as caught in a self-perpetuating cycle of failure, in which the absence of stable, successful adult role models ensures that young blacks will do poorly in school, turn to street life, and father yet another generation of boys without adequate male role models. Kunjufu has developed counter-strategies to this "conspiracy" in a number of his other books. Kunjufu instead urges that each black child be helped to identify and cultivate his or her talents; from these discoveries, the child must build a means of livelihood, preferably, according to Kunjufu, by starting his or her own businesses.

But in order to do this, children need the support and discipline of strong, loving, and concerned parents. In this, as in all of his books and workshops, Kunjufu finds in the family the only effective defense against what he views as an inherently racist society; he particularly stresses the critical role of black men as role models and providers of discipline.

Kunjufu travels constantly in his role as moderator of these workshops and frequently lectures as well, addressing schools from the elementary grades on up to the college level. In the late s, Kunjufu entered a new sphere of activity as the executive producer of a full-length motion picture, Up Against the Wall.

Inspired by the success of independent black filmmakers such as Spike Lee and Robert Townsend , Kunjufu set out to make a film about black urban culture that would address the problems facing young black males without indulging in scenes of violence, sex, and drug abuse. Kunjufu told Frank James of the Chicago Tribune, "I wanted a movie that could take a black boy through positive and negative peer pressure and see if he could survive…and be a responsible young man.

As he has recommended in book after book, Kunjufu managed to use the American educational process to develop his talents, create a successful business, and with his wife, Rita, raise two sons in a stable household.

In , Kunjufu opened a retail bookstore for African American Images which has since grown to be one of the largest black-owned bookstores in the country, with over 10, square feet of space and over 4, titles. Kunjufu has continued to compile studies and write books offering advice to black Americans about gaining a better education and creating a nurturing community in which to thrive. Nearly twenty years after his first publication, Kunjufu offered another groundbreaking study about the state of life for African American males.

The picture looked grim, with a rising number of black men in prison and alarming numbers of black boys relegated to special education classes in schools.

In State of Emergency: We Must Save African American Males, Kunjufu offers statistics to show the magnitude of the social problem, but more importantly he lays out detailed advice for how to improve the situation he calls a "state of emergency. As with his other books, Kunjufu offers a series of best practices and approaches for parents, teachers and community activists to help address the problems he identifies.

Where some black leaders have been criticized for blaming the problems facing African Americans on racism alone, and others have occasionally stressed self-reliance while glossing over difficult discussions of racism, Kunjufu has found an important middle ground; by helping African Americans chart a course through racist waters and, at the same time, indicating the importance of black role models, strong families, and economic self-sufficiency, this learned author and educator has established himself as a leading voice of black empowerment.
