Bakari Sellers' memoir is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. I've had the privilege to get to know Bakari and his family during this quarantine. As the son of civil rights leader Cleveland Sellers, who was injured during the Orangeburg Massacre of 1968, Bakari was imbued with an activist spirit early on. After graduating from Morehouse College and the USC School of Law, he won a seat in the South Carolina House of Representatives at age 22, becoming the youngest African American elected official in the country. His memoir is a beautiful story about family, service, and hope.
