Abstract:

The respected civil rights leader and host of "PoliticsNation" presents a rousing call to action that examines the administrations of Barack Obama and Donald Trump while heralding the movements that have emerged in response to today's political turbulence.

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 to shed light on everything from race relations and gender bias to climate change and the global pandemic. -- Adapted from inside front jacket flap.
