Less than a week after its publication date, The Rejected Stone hit the New York Times bestsellers list, appearing on the Hardcover Nonfiction List at No. 21.
The Rev and I thank everyone who has supported this book so vigorously and we hope to keep the momentum going. We’ve just gotten word that Rev. Sharpton will be sitting down with Oprah Winfrey—so hopefully we’ll keep marching up the list.
Pick up the October issue of Ebony to read two of my pieces: one on black boys and the police, in the form of a suggested script to help parents have that dreaded talk with their sons; and the other a profile of Brian Banks, who got a shot at his pro football dreams after being wrongfully convicted of rape and spending five years in jail and five years on probation. He was recently cut by the Falcons, but that doesn’t take away one iota from his moving tale.
See if the Reverend will be in a city near you, signing copies of our book, The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership.
