Description: The information in Basic Black goes from "CP Time" to "Don't You Dare", from addressing your wedding invitations to addressing a police officer who has perhaps arbitrarily stopped you as you're driving through the city. It covers traditional etiquette, such as table settings, being a good host, letter writing, and tipping. And it covers the essentials of black American tradition: joining a church, mentoring young people, planning a funeral, family reunions, participating in clubs and organizations. In addition, some delicate areas seldom discussed in other etiquette books are addressed here, such as race in the workplace, handling service people who are less-than-enthusiastic about having black customers, and keeping your job and your temper when racial slurs are used in your presence. This book is for everyone. Want to know how to host a dinner to close that deal? Need some guidance on what to wear to that all-important first job interview? Planning your first big party? Or your annual open house? Wondering what to give the new high-school graduate or the littlest ballerina for her first recital? Basic Black can help. Manners are an equal-opportunity thing, so Bates and Hudson wrote Basic Black for men as well as women: check "And Brother, Remember" for tips on entertaining at home, dating etiquette, opening a champagne bottle, and planning a wedding with the love of your life.
