The book's cover, designed by Prime Access, Inc., shows a spectrum of colorful strands symbolizing various cultures interconnecting, crossing over and embracing each other to form a circle. The globe has been magnified beyond the dimensions of the cover, so that it visually "overtakes" the parameters of the space - which tells an interesting story about the growth of the multicultural market.

This year's cover also includes a new logo for Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. which has also been incorporated into the company's redesigned website, www.multicultural.com.

Statistical highlights from the expert-written Source Book articles include:
•    40 million African American consumers are approaching 14% of the U.S. population
•    Asians are more likely than all groups to have computers at home, own laptops, and they are among the most mature users of the Web
•    The Hispanic community has contributed to over 50% of our country's population growth in the past 10 years and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future
•    6-8 million US Muslims are spending $170 billion a year
•    In 2009 estimated LGBT buying power was $712 billion
•    The Disability market comprises $1 trillion in aggregate income, and $200 billion in purchasing power.

Marketing executives will find ad agencies, research companies and other experts in multicultural marketing to help them reach these growing populations--minority communities that will represent their majority customer in not just urban areas, but all over the nation. Human resource and purchasing executives will find contacts for vendors and suppliers that are minority- or women-owned businesses.

Journalists can browse listings, categorized by industry and market segment, to find a knowledgeable expert to provide background information or a quote for publication. These experts serve as credible sources for articles on ethnic communities or multicultural marketing and to add their voices to year-round coverage of a diverse America.

Many companies listed in The Source Book have also been featured in Multicultural Marketing News, the digital newsletter published by Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. "We decided to publish the first Source Book of Multicultural Experts because of the volume of calls we were getting from reporters seeking diverse sources for stories and from marketing executives looking for experts to help them reach ethnic customers," said Lisa Skriloff, publisher, The Source Book of Multicultural Experts and president of Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. "The Source Book makes it easy for them to get in touch with these experts."
