This essay will present my thoughts and some of my poetry about the costs and benefits along the pathway of success. In describing personal stories and scholarship written by men and women of color involving assimilation, marginalization, cooptation, and transformation issues, this essay will first show that a woman of color’s perspective on achieving success differs from a man of color’s perspective. Second, it will explain why women of color have a different perspective from white women. Finally, the essay will discuss the challenges posed by a post-"transformation" world.
