Abstract : The ability and opportunity for black leaders to succeed in the military has been influenced by education, occupation, singularity, mentorship and competition. As a result, many contributions of Black Strategic Leaders have gone practically unnoticed. A review of the contributions of Black Strategic Leaders using historical examples, in conjunction with the competencies of strategic leadership will show that Blacks have made significant contributions. Additionally, the data and the impact of the influences will reveal that race was the primary factor which prevented the presence and recognition of Black Strategic Leaders. To overcome the issues of race and recognition in the military system, Blacks must: use and be mentors, understand the environment of competition, assimilate into the larger society sooner, and make occupational choices conducive to becoming Black Strategic Leaders.
