I AM A LONG-TIME SUBSCRIBER TO BLACK black enterprises. As an African American male working in the corporate sector, I find your articles informative and insightful; they offer an interesting perspective on the corporate landscape and culture. The article titled "HotList '05" further solidified and confirmed my feelings.

As I read about the many accomplishments of these trailblazers, I felt an amazing sense of pride. But moreover I felt empowered and encouraged about my own situation. I suspect some of these individuals have stories just like mine; they became frustrated with the limitations imposed upon them and decided to challenge the status quo by stepping out on their own. I applaud these pioneers for having the courage, convictions, and the resiliency to see their goals through. Surely there had to be dark moments when they questioned "Why am I doing this?" But I, along with many of your readers, am grateful for their tenacity.

Kudos to you, BE, for creating the venue for these stories to be told.
