Mississippi State dominated Southeastern Conference basketball in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Starting in 1959, the team won four conference titles over five seasons. Yet despite earning their way, the Bulldogs remained routinely absent from NCAA tournaments. Amid a climate of fierce segregation, Mississippi refused to allow its collegiate teams to compete with integrated programs. In 1963, one team determined to compete on the national stage made state history. Led by beloved coach Babe McCarthy and supported by university students and administration, the Bulldogs made a daring and furtive trip to play Loyola's integrated team in the national tournament. Now, sports journalist Kyle Veazey vividly recounts the amazing journey of a team that refused to be hindered by the status quo.

The authors, who represent Empowerdex (Economic Empowerment Rating Agency), have interviewed many of the top black leaders, executives and managers, for rare insight into their lives and achievements. Where did they get their first jobs? What personal philosophies motivate them? Trailblazers is focused on the recent history of black business in South Africa and the secrets of the pioneers who made it, while also giving indications for further changes stemming from research and politics. The personal vision of those currently in power will shape the future of business, and the authors trust that their research and debate will inspire more young business people, whose talents are so badly needed to increase South Africa's prosperity. Empowerdex has identified the need for a new breed of business leadership in South Africa, one more involved with day-to-day decision-making. The authors discuss the context Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) has created for powerful black business people, and give voice to the pioneers who can offer advice and vision to inspire younger aspiring executives. Their research shows the relationship between politics, business and the South African economy, as well as the facts and figures behind these powerful people and their companies. Trailblazers offers insight and knowledge of the current business environment and its potential.
