Overview

Lord knows, Rev Al has had his personal and very public ups and downs - but he's come out bigger and better than ever. Though the host of MSNBC's PoliticsNation is as fiery and outspoken as ever about the events and issues that matter most, he's learned that the only way we can get right as a nation is by getting right from within.

In this, his first book in over a decade, Rev Al will take you behind the scenes of some unexpected places – from officiating Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston’s funerals, hanging out with Jay-Z and President Barack Obama at the White House, to taking charge of the Trayvon Martin case. And he will discuss how he came to his unexpected conclusions in such areas as Immigration, Gay Rights, Religion and the Family. But the heart of the book is an intimate discussion of his own personal evolution from street activist, pulpit provocateur and civil rights leader to the man he is today - one hundred pounds slimmer, and according to the New York Observer “the most thoughtful voice on cable.” No, the Rev. Al you met ten years ago isn’t the same man you’ll meet today. And he has a simple promise. We can transform this nation and we can all lead better lives if we're willing to transform our hearts and transform our minds.

    Rev. Sharpton has captured the essence of the hardships, trials

    Rev. Sharpton has captured the essence of the hardships, trials and joys of physically experiencing and seeing this country evolve.   And while today, we are in subtle (and not so subtle) ways seeing and hearing the ugliness of racism in our government, in our neighborhoods, in our schools and the streets throughout america, we still have come a long way.  The book is written with a very clear and concise, straight forward, no nonsense prose for the young reader and for the aged.  If you are looking for first hand historical information from one born in raised in the deep south, The Rejected Stone is a great place to start!  Thank you Reverend Sharpton for taking the painstaking time to share your life with us!

    Highly recommended for ALL readers...

    I purchased this book because I personally know this man's wonderful family and have loved his relentless dedication to the people for so many years. I found this book to be remarkable as it is informative, inspirational, and humbling. As a former teacher I feel this book, The Rejected Stone, by Al Sharpton should be on of the mandatory, required reading list for ALL students...
