Video Review: Black Carpenter by Actor Brian White (Stomp the Yard, Best Man)

August 21, 2011

The purpose of Black Carpenter is to create a tool box of essential life skills for the next generation.


As talent goes, Brian J. White is about as talented as one man could be. He is smart, witty, athletic, endearing, attractive and giving, among many other qualities. His background includes being accomplished as an actor, NFL player, professional dancer, youth activist and an all-around great guy.

Along with co-author Anna Cheshire Levitan, Brian recently released the Kindle Edition of their new book “Black Carpenter: Straight Talk to Build a Solid Foundation“ through Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005ALGOCW). Now, Brian can add the title “Author” to his list of accomplishments. This book will undoubtedly change lives and impact futures. Something we are sure this humble gentleman from Massachusetts intends.

Brian stood out in the background of the film “The Best Man” and never had to say a word. Now he is speaking from his heart and sharing his personal knowledge about how to use these tools to become the best you that you can be. The title of the book “Black Carpenter” is a metaphor in the sense that he shows you how to build a successful life – no matter what race, nationality or background from which you derive. 

And he should know!

How many people can say they have played in the NFL, starred on TV shows (Men of A Certain Age, The Shield, Second Time Around, etc.), films (The Family Stone, Stomp The Yard, Fighting, Politics of Love, etc), acquired their license as a stock broker, became a loving husband and has always been known to be a loyal friend? Brian J. White…although he would never say this, because he is one of the most humble men you could ever meet.

In the book Brian shares, “Black Carpenter is divided into five Parts: Education, Health and Fitness, the Arts, Relationships, and Spirituality. Through personal storytelling and honest revelation, I apply the four carpentry tools – the hammer of strength, level of balance, locking pliers of tenacity, and tape measure of accountability – to each part. I tell you the truth about my life and journey to become a Black Carpenter, the mistakes I made and lessons I learned the hard way. My tales are not perfect and my actions are not always admirable, but they are real. I banged my fingers with the hammer more than a couple of times until I learned the lesson of strength through humility (White, Brian (2011). Black Carpenter (Kindle Locations 203-208). Kindle Edition.).”
