Rev. Al Sharpton revisits the highlights of the Obama administration, the 2016 election, and Trump's subsequent hold on the GOP, and draws on his decades-long experience with other key players in politics and activism. He also amplifies the new voices and movements that have emerged in response to the Trump presidency. An examination of the American soul and a clarion call to action offers lessons for anyone who's stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choice of how to proceed. <strong>&quot;This man is a gift from God to the world. This book is a gift from Al Sharpton to us. Let's appreciate them both.&quot; --Michael Eric Dyson <p></p>A rousing call to action for today's turbulent political moment, drawing on lessons learned from Reverend Al Sharpton's unique experience as a politician, television and radio host, and civil rights leader. <p></p></strong>Beginning with a foreword by Michael Eric Dyson and closing with Rev.

A rousing call to action for today's turbulent political moment, drawing on lessons learned from Reverend Al Sharpton's unique experience as a politician, television and radio host, and civil rights leader.

Beginning with a foreword by Michael Eric Dyson and closing with Rev. Al Sharpton's moving eulogy for George Floyd, Rise Up offers timeless lessons for anyone who's stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choices of how to proceed.

When the young Alfred Charles Sharpton told his mother he wanted to be a preacher, little did he know that his journey would also lead him to prominence as a politician, founder of the National Action Network, civil rights activist, and television and radio talk show host. His enduring ability and willingness to take on the political power structure makes him the preeminent voice for the modern era, a time unprecedented in its challenges.

In Rise Up, Reverend Sharpton revisits the highlights of the Obama administration, the 2016 election and Trump's subsequent hold on the GOP, and draws on his decades-long experience with other key players in politics and activism, including Shirley Chisholm, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and more.

The time has come to take a hard look at our collective failures and shortcomings and reclaim our core values in order to build a clear and just path forward for America. Our nation today stands at a crossroads--and change can't wait.

"Full of history, honesty, and valuable suggestions, Rise Up should be a staple in every home, school and library as an essential primer on civil and political rights in America." -- Martin Luther King, III

"If you want to learn how to use your voice to change a nation, you should study closely this man--and this book."
