Overview

Walk in My Shoes: Conversations between a Civil Rights Legend and his Godson on the Journey Ahead by Andrew J. Young, Kabir Sehgal

A top aide to Martin Luther King, Jr., Andrew Young has been a witness to history and has made his own. During the civil rights movement, he worked tirelessly as a strategist and negotiator during the campaigns that resulted in the passage of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, and was at Martin Luther King, Jr.'s side when he was assassinated. For years, in correspondence and conversation, he has been mentoring his godson, Kabir Sehgal. In this entertaining and provocative discourse, Young shares his thoughts and meditations on such important topics as race, civil rights, faith, and leadership. Young offers his wisdom on these subjects to a new generation of young men and women in hopes that his battle-tested voice will inspire and encourage those in whose hands the world will soon rest.
