Product Details


“A powerful, welcome manifesto in the cause of a new and better South—and a ‘better America.'”—Kirkus Reviews

“Mitch Landrieu takes us on an extraordinarily powerful journey that is both political and personal. With a balance of humility and conviction, he recounts his path to a more profound understanding of racial justice and explains how this journey led him to remove the Confederate monuments in New Orleans. It’s an important book for everyone in America to read, because it shows how intellectual honesty can lead to moral clarity.” —Walter Isaacson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leonardo Da Vinci and Steve Jobs
