A National Bestseller
A New York Times Bestselling Author
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, and civil rights activist. His enduring ability to take on the political power structure makes him the voice for the modern era, a time unprecedented in its challenges. In Rise Up, Reverend Sharpton writes that 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.
