Sylvester served on the research and editing team with former advertising executive, Tom Burrell on his book Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority. Sylvester has worked with numerous authors including Tavis Smiley on the E-Book "Too Important to Fail," which accompanied the September 2011 PBS special of the same name.
In January 2011, Sylvester established When we Dream Together Inc., a nonprofit aimed at revitalizing long-ignored urban areas. Many of his writings revolve around creating "independent systems within the established system" for black survival. He maintains that this is the only real solution in addressing long-ingrained and historical challenges African Americans face. Sylvester also explores black leadership (or lack thereof) and the racial and political paradigms that hamper real progress under America's first black president.
Sylvester has been a guest on the "O'Reilly Factor," "Al Franken Show," "The Tavis Smiley Show" and "The Michael Eric Dyson" radio programs. In 2005 ABC's "Nightline" reported on Sylvester's forum featuring Dr. Bill Cosby.
