Click the link below to view Spotlight on the News Interview with Bernard White
We received a copy of this interview of Bernard White from a 2006 interview with Tara Kachaturoff of Michigan Entrepreneur (who just interviewed me, again and my son Donovan on August 2, 2018). It was interesting to see myself and thought process during that time.
Since its inception in 1989, White Construction has become one of Detroit's most succesful African American-owned businesses.
Read how W. Bernard White rose from humble beginnings in Detroit, to evolve as a student, person and professional, to start, own and operate White Construction. See color photos and renderings of White Construction projects, many of which have become notable landmarks and structures throughout Detroit.
The Foreword was written by former Mayor Dennis Archer.

The District Detroit, which includes Little Caesars Arena and many other new developments, has already created more than 670 apprentice and pre-apprentice positions with hundreds of Detroit and Michigan-based contractors since April 2015.
W. Bernard White was proud to be recognized as a member of the Benefactors Society by Lawrence Technological University (Virinder Moudgil, President, LTU) for cumulative giving of $25,000 or more at "LTU's Springsation", held at The Henry Ford on May 18, 2017.
"These last couple of weeks at White Construction has been great and I’ve learned many different things in and outside the office such as having to create project proposals, and not getting every project that has been offered. Also, I have learned about having many different important roles to have a successful company.
So from having my internship here, I will gather as much knowledge as I can to make me have the best future for myself."
