Here is the remarkable journey of faith, grit, clear-thinking, and powerful expression that propelled Mark Robinson from the depths of poverty to a political awakening as a conservative who would ultimately become the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina. It’s a story filled with lessons and inspiration, as well as a loving evocation of Robinson’s childhood, and his blue-collar, working man’s path through the economic ravages wrought by NAFTA and unthinking globalism. Most of all it is the story of a man speaking for us, for the majority of Americans who have built a country on common sense and sacred individual rights. Robinson entered the once-thriving, blue-collar workplace in North Carolina’s Piedmont—only to run up against the ravages of NAFTA as it decimated American manufacturing. These hard times served as a wake-up call for Robinson who realized that he was a Republican and a conservative at heart—and had always been so. It was a conviction that led to a successful run against all odds for the lieutenant governorship and launched a powerful voice for a return to faith, decency, common sense, and liberty across America. Here is Mark Robinson’s story.

About the Author

Mark Robinson grew up poor in Greensboro, North Carolina, as the ninth of ten children in a small green shingled house with a red roof. In 2018, his life changed as he stood up against the Greensboro City Council in a fiery and common-sense speech against a senseless gun control measure which has since garnered over 150 million views. It was a speech which propelled him into politics where he ultimately became the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina and a national conservative voice for decency and freedom. Robinson resides in Greensboro with his family.
