By Masciotra, David
There are few figures and leaders of recent American history of greater social and political consequence than Jesse Jackson, and few more relevant for America's current political climate. In the 1960s, Jackson served as a close aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, meeting him on the n...otorious march to legitimate the American democratic system in Selma. He was there on the day of King's assassination, and continued his political legacy, inspiring a generation of black and Latino politicians and activists. In I Am Somebody, David Masciotra argues that Jackson's legacy must be rehabilitated in the history of american politics. Masciotra has had personal access to Jackson for several years, conducting over 100 interviews with the man himself. I Am Somebody will also feature interviews with a wide variety of elected officials and activists who Jackson has inspired and influenced. As Democratic politics sees a return to radicalism and the rise of a new generation of committed advocates of racial and economic justice, I Am Somebody: Why Jesse Jackson Matters is a critical book for understanding where America in the 21st Century has come from and where it is going.Read more
