Summary
Racial inequality persists in the United States, even if it doesn not haev an urgent place on our national agenda and it is not fashionable to discuss it, this book will compel people to reevaluate a commitment to social and economic justice. A perspective focused on assets brings new insights and understanding to the race dilemma, and that asset-based public policy can provide fresh approaches to attack poverty, racial inequality, and social injustice
