Malcolm X remarked that "education is the passport of the future." This book, developed for aspiring and forward-thinking college students, identifies future careers and future skill sets for the global marketplace and workspaces on the horizon. These future careers include occupations in artificial intelligence, information technology, wearables, virtual reality, genomics, cryptocurrencies, connected homes and others. The skill sets presented include complex problem solving, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, cognitive flexibility, detail orientation, creativity, and others anticipating future competencies. The concepts of factual knowledge, conceptual knowledge, procedural knowledge, and meta-cognitive knowledge are also discussed to foster the undergraduate learning experience in American higher education.

The Late Eugene Davis Stevenson, DDS and Eric Kevin Woods, DDS
Proud HBCU Alums of Meharry Medical College, Nashville, Tennessee
Worship of God Through Service to Mankind (Meharry Epigram)
for Beloved Keith Bernell Stevenson
Our sourcebook is dedicated to one of the author s oldest brother, Eugene Davis Stevenson and his closest friend, Eric Kevin Wood, both graduates of Meharry Medical College - an institution blessed with a most appropriate aphorism for this sourcebook. A Foreword is typically defined for this type of publication as a preamble written by a person other than the author. In this case, we are choosing to write the Foreword on behalf of another person - the co-author s other late brother, Keith Bernell Stevenson. Keith, who is also a strong advocate of Malcolm X s philosophy, was one of the brightest, talented, creative, and brilliant human beings known to the co-author. Among the philosophical tenets Keith shared with Malcolm X was self-reliance, social responsibility, care for humanity, social justice, and deep love for African American people. Keith s ability to recall the details of African American history, heritage, culture, and injustice is remarkable, astonishing, and quite frankly profound. I am certain he appreciates the concepts, content, and context of this timely book aimed at empowering historically Black colleges and universities and informing their leaders about how to consider the alternatives of futurism to forge ahead for sustaining a cyclical, evolutionary, and everlasting history. In this regard, the Foreword for a book on futurism is actually a preamble for a narrative about futuring history for a sector and space in American higher education that has elevated, excelled, and emancipated many, many African Americans. To this end, and with this perspective, we are pleased to provide this Foreword in recognition of the silent, quiet, and subtle leadership of Keith Bernell Stevenson. Among the comments he recently shared with me was that he wished he had attended an Historically Black University. Although he works at arguably the premier public institution of higher learning in America, Cal Berkeley, he has always cherished his upbringing at Fisk University, another premier institution of higher learning with a rich cultural history and anticipated profound future. Through Keith, we encourage students, faculty, administrators and other stakeholders at Fisk and Berkeley to read this book.
Finally, the co-authors would like especially encourage students at HBCUs to read this book in the larger context written so eloquently by the late Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, the founding President of Bethune Cookman University. Indeed, this remarkable African American woman was a futurist way ahead of her time and this is echoed in her Last Testament and Will. Her depth of wisdom is so relevant to young people today amid racial division, divide, and divisiveness. Here are excerpts from her will:
I leave you love .
I leave you hope .
I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in each other .
I leave you a thirst for learning .
I leave you respect for the uses of power .
I leave you I leave you faith .
I leave you racial dignity .
I leave you I leave a desire to live harmoniously with your fellow men .
I leave you finally a responsibility to our young people .
I pray now that my philosophy may be helpful to those who share my vision of the world of Peace, Progress, Brotherhood, and Love
Under the past leadership of President Mary McLeod Bethune and the present leadership of President of E. LaBrent Chrite, the University promises to be positioned in the future as a premier HBCU in America. Hail Wildcats.
Malcolm X s Metaphysics, Metaphors More
Metaphysics is the nature of reality and of being. In America today as we leave behind 2020, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) must maintain their history in society while elevating toward a bold, new reality of and for being. This reality should be embedded within and embraced by a new-found foundation in futurism to sustain institutional existence, mission momentum, and everlasting legacy. The Malcolm X s Passport metaphor is most symbolic, most revealing, and most awakening in this regard. The reality includes the metaphysics of being within society s existence of a fiercely competitive marketplace where market share positioning of HBCUs will become increasingly disruptive, challenging, compromising, jeopardizing, and vulnerable despite the continued emergence of hyper turbulence from growing racial divisiveness in America. On the surface and from short sighted analysis, the divisiveness could reinforce market positioning, growth, and expansion; however, a longer sight examination may present different, more substantive outcomes and impact - thus, reinforcing the value of forward-thinking and the importance of future-anchoring missions for all campus stakeholders at today and tomorrow s HBCUs. Indeed, within our presented advocacy for an integrated futurological framework in curriculum and culture, we believe all of today s HBCUs should universally follow the tenets of the mission statement at prestigious Clark Atlanta University -- an institution rooted in African American tradition and focused on the future.
Futurology or future studies involve data, analytics, data informed decision making with attention to forecasting detail. Indeed, bold new openings and opportunities can be found by studying, anticipating, projecting, and forecasting the future. Other systems, sectors, and societies outside higher education have done this for many, many years. Since the beginning of time, humans have been preoccupied with projections, forecasts, predictions, and trajectories of future civilizations. This has helped to shape what we reference later in this book as what if questions. This book is fundamentally about positioning for the future and is primarily written for concerned stakeholders, committed stewards, and cultivated argonauts in the academic communities of American HBCUs who are interested in anchoring, maintaining, and sustaining the existence of HBCUs by focusing on future-forward thinking concerning what students learn, how faculty teach, and how the campus embraces futurism based on historical foundations of the institution. While we recognize that focusing on futures does not necessarily result in predicted outcomes, we believe that exploring futuring methods can mitigate the odds of vulnerabilities with individuals and institutions. To this end, we believe creative futuring methods, innovations, strategies, designs, and techniques can empower both individuals and institutions at HBCUs with exploring possibilities, gauging probabilities, and clarifying preferences. We define metaphysics in our book as the guiding principles of being, knowing, identifying, and mindful substance. For more information about HBCUs, our readers should review American Treasures (2015) by Shults and Stevenson, also published by Academica Press.

Claim a different future - Bryan Stevenson in True Justice
We define metaphors as an imagery, figure of speech, symbolism, analogy, and allegory for capturing the essence of the book. We have found over the years that the usage and application of metaphors and metaphysics in college-learning is very formative, relational, enlightening, and facilitating discourse about futurism. The book s reference to futuring finds is based on two literary inspirations - the 2004 groundbreaking book, I ll Find My Way or Make One by Williams and Ashley and the motto of Clark Atlanta University, an institution formed as the result of two merged historically Black institutions of higher learning. Clark Atlanta was established in 1988 by the consolidation of Atlanta University (1865), the nation s first graduate school for African Americans, and Clark College (1869), the nation s first four-year liberal arts institution to serve a predominantly African American undergraduate student population. For Atlanta University the motto was I ll Find a Way or Make One and for Clark College, it was Culture for Service. Today in 2021, Clark Atlanta University (CAU) is one of the nation s foremost research institutions, offering students from around the United St
