Overview

Star Parker is a firm believer in the American dream. But nowadays, liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, and secular humanists and Christians have such different worldviews on what America and life are about that all common ground seems lost. We can't talk to one another, let alone respect one another. In this collection of her syndicated columns from 2018, Parker speaks her mind on a range of controversial issues—Christian persecution, the importance of school choice, the collapse of the American family and more—and calls attention to the civil discourse that's essential for our country to function as intended.

About the Author

Star Parker is one of the names on the short list of national black conservative leaders. She is the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education
(CURE), a Washington D.C.-based public policy institute that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty. Star consulted on federal welfare reform in the mid-90s and then founded CURE to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America's poor from government dependency. She was a featured speaker at the 1996 Republican National Convention.
Before involvement in social activism, she had seven years of firsthand experience in the grip of welfare dependency. After a Christian conversion, she changed her life. Now Star regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty.
In 2017, Star joined the White House Opportunity Initiative task force to share ideas on how to best fix our nation’s most distressed zip codes. In 2018, she was appointed to the U.S. Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission.
Star has a bachelor's degree in Marketing and International Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues. In 2016, the Conservative Political Action Conference honored her with the Ronald Reagan Foot Soldier of the Year award. In 2017, Star received the Groundswell Impact award, and in 2018, Bott Radio Network presented Star with its annual Queen Esther award.
To date, Star Parker has spoken on more than 225 college campuses including Harvard,
Berkeley, Emory, Liberty, Franciscan, UCLA, and UVA. She has authored several books; is a regular commentator on national television and radio networks including the BBC, EWTN, and FOX News; and is a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators, reaching 7 million readers weekly.
