African American men and women have not had the same social and economic advantages as Whites in the United States. It almost seems too obvious to remind readers that Blacks and Whites have journeys in this country that mainly begin from different vantage points. The majority of Whites started their journey free; whereas the large majority of Blacks began their journey in slavery. So, the career development and career interests of the two groups have necessarily been different. African Americans have spent 300 years fighting for the right to have careers free and clear. One must now ask, “Have we taken African Americans into account as career theories and interventions have been created and implemented?” It is assumed that most major career theories were formulated on middle-class, college-educated, White males and that group is the only one that has had such specific attention. Additionally, one assumes that since the inclusion of the dimension of culture into the theoretical discourse on career counseling, racial and ethnic groups have generally gained more prominence and exploration. Yet, it is likely that career counseling with African American men and women in this country still needs special consideration.
