Dreams Deferred: Recession, Struggle, and the Quest for a Better World bears witness to the struggle of a deep-thinking, curious, and intelligent young Black man from Dallas, Texas, who grew up as the only child of a loving mother in a stable yet poor household. Author Brandolon Barnett discusses his personal journey from entering the workforce to establishing himself as a leader in the non-profit arena. Dreams Deferred confronts head on the tension between the author’s hopes, ambitions, and sense of humor and the harsh realities of a world that at every turn seems determined to quash them. Barnett’s story offers a heaping dose of inspiration for anyone trying to find their way in the world without giving up on their dreams.
