Leadership Under Fire: Advancing, Communicating, Teaching and Setting Communities at Liberty is our story of personal transformation. It also is a call to reignite our dreams, reexamine our journey to freedom, rebuild our communities and reclaim our backyards. Leadership Under Fire pushes us to acknowledge a changing world, break with self-destructive patterns and assume our rightful place as global leaders. A leader acts under fire. The work is divided into four parts to form the acrostic ACTS: Part I Advancing progress; Part II Communicating in tough times; Part III Teaching ancestors and counter-narrative history; Part IV Setting communities at liberty. We discuss what emotional landmines exist in the real world, share lessons from the classroom, on the streets, within the church and in the ghettoes and public housing communities.
