Beginning with a foreword by Michael Eric Dyson and closing with Rev. Sharpton's moving eulogy for George Floyd, Rise Up offers timeless lessons for anyone who's stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choices of how to proceed.
Reverend Sharpton revisits the highlights of the Obama administration, the 2016 election and Trump's subsequent hold on the GOP, and draws on his decades-long experience with other key players in politics and activism, including Shirley Chisholm, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and more.
Rev. Sharpton will be in conversation with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, a Georgetown University sociology professor, a New York Times contributing opinion writer, and a contributing editor of The New Republic and ESPN's The Undefeated website.
