    Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement

    A civil-rights activist offers up a plan for bridging America's racial and economic divide.

    "A battle-hardened pastor calls for a faith-based, grass-roots movement for social justice...It's the religious component that makes his story particularly interesting. Fully aware of the suspicion Bible-speak arouses in modern progressive circles, the author still insists on viewing the justice struggle through a moral prism, one always backstopped by 'a Higher Power.'...A heartfelt dose of old-time religion mixed with modern-day activism." - Kirkus Reviews

Complex characters and a strong voice make this one stand out." - Kirkus, Starred Review
