I can't think of a better thing to do during this political season than to pick up a copy of the new book, Brown is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority, a fresh look at the changing voting majority in the US. Written by Steve Philips, Brown is the New White sends a wake-up call to anyone with a social conscience that people of color are key to electing public officials who care about our children, our families, our environment, and our country’s future. Steve's commitment to social justice permeates this book and will inspire you.
