This is a must read book for Conservatives, political activists, political candidates, and others who desire to understand the inner workings of the Black Community, politically and socially, and the relevancy of the Black Conservative message today in getting out the African-American vote for Conservatives.

Camilla J. Moore, Political Scientist and Public Administrator, brings to readers an inside view of the lonely struggle of Black Conservatives in America. She examines the shift in ideology and asks a number of important questions that can affect voter turnout in the Black community:
• What is Black Conservatism?
• Who are Black Conservatives?
• Are there ideological differences among them?
• Is there anything unique about their dilemma, debates, journey, and myths?
• Does Black Conservatism have any relevancy in the Black Community today?
• If not, can Black Conservatism as an ideology regain its support within the African-American community?
• And if so, to what degree, and what would be the long-term implications?
• And what is the impact of Black Conservatism on the African-American vote?


.....When intellectuals attempt to describe the African-American community, they often use the word "conservative." However, nothing ignites debate in the academic sphere and, more generally, in the African-American community than discussions surrounding the political philosophy or ideology of Conservatism, particularly Black Conservatism.

......There is an ongoing debate within the African-American community, regarding which ideology, conservatism or liberalism, best serves their community over the long run.

....Being an African-American Conservative in the 21st century can be a lonely experience, despised by the majority of African-Americans, seen as traitors by Black Nationalists, and not conservative enough for White Conservatives. Sometimes living in isolation betwixt friends and foes, they often find themselves alone.
