Al on America
A groundbreaking, candid, and important outline for action--an inspiring vision of a new America from the seasoned and controversial grass-roots leader, and Presidential candidate. In this new millennium, in this new America, it's time for new leadership. It's time for a leader who understands that our greatest strength lies in our differences. That from Los Angeles to New York, from the Indian reservations to the ghettoes of St. Louis, from North Dakota to North Carolina, from the Hawaiian Islands to the Island of Vieques, from boys in the 'hood to the girls in the country clubs, this country's greatest resources are found in our people and their differences. In this grounbreaking, candid, and necessary book, the man New York magazine calls "The Untouchable" delivers his manifesto for change and puts forth a startling, often controversial, and wholly inspiring vision of a new America--one that is inclusive of all Americans, not just a chosen few. While serving time for his act of civil disobedience in Vieques, Sharpton stepped back and looked at America. Now, he's ready to empower America and get the country talking about things that matter to us all--from the economy to foregin policy, family values to the hip-hop movement, the war on drugs to the conflict between Palestine and Israel. Sure to ignite a firestorm of debate, Al on America is a bold new vision in a time when vision is needed more than ever. It is a stirring call to action delivered by a man who has faith in the future of America and the passion, knowledge, and foresight to take her there.
