Book Review by Kam Williams

“As a defense attorney, I spend a lot of time counseling young African-American men and women about making better lives for themselves… It hurts me to see so many of our young… going to jail instead of college.

Reverend Sharpton’s and Jackson’s messages of bias, prejudice, victimization, and the need for special treatment…”
