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!
