    All young people need good role models, beyond the famous and
    wealthy people they see on SportsCenter highlights and MTV Cribs. Real Role
    Models introduces high school and college-age African Americans to
    twenty-three black professionals who have achieved a high level of success
    in their chosen fields. Some of the individuals profiled by Joah Spearman
    and Louis Harrison, Jr., include Leonard Pitts, Pulitzer Prize-winning
    columnist for the Miami Herald; Melody Barnes, Director of the White House
    Domestic Policy Council; Danyel Smith, editor-in-chief of Vibe; and Dr. Tim
    George, Chief of Pediatric Neuroscience at Dell Children's Medical Center of
    Central Texas. They and other interviewees describe their backgrounds,
    career paths, and desire to give back by helping others reach their goals.
    Representing a wide range of occupations, these real role models prove to
    African American youths that a whole world of successful, rewarding careers
    awaits them.
