READ, LEARN, THINK "Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons and the Racial Divide" is an intelligent, informative, historical account of the events, people and history that gave rise to the Civil Rights movement in America and the election of the first African American President of the United States. Open minded people, of all races and political stripes can learn from this book, though it may take courage to read it. It is thought provoking and will challenge you in ways we all need to be in navigating our current times. I have tremendous respect for Joy as a journalist and I would have liked to hear her opinions especially of the criticisms leveled at President Obama from some more left leaning African Americans. This is a great book for book clubs, and classrooms alike.
