A How To Guide For The Hip Hop Generation
By Maya Rockeymoore, Ph.D.
FOREWORD BY DR. MICHAEL ERIC DYSON
"Maya Rockeymoore delivers a hard-hitting step-by-step analysis of what it takes to become politically active. Her unique perspective does not sugarcoat U.S. democracy but provides a realistic view on how to gain political power."
--Michael Moore, Author of Stupid White Men and Director of Fahrenheit 9/11
"A powerful voice seeking to empower the voiceless...This book throws down the gauntlet...The Hip Hop Generation cannot afford to be disengaged from the political process."
--U.S. Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, Congressional Black Caucus Chair
"This book underscores that the Hip Hop Generation cannot continue to be armchair critics of the political system. They must become fully engaged so that they can strengthen their communities and change the direction of this country."
--U.S. Congressman Charles Rangel, Harlem, New York
"Political primer, policy roadmap, a seasoned voice of experience and an urgent call to action, this is a wonderful book and a valuable resource. No political scientist can speak more clearly to her generation than Dr. Maya Rockeymoore, and no book is more timely now than The Political Action Handbook."
--Dr. Julianne Malveaux, Economist and Author
"Now more than ever, young people must become more actively engaged in the political process and organize themselves so that they will have the political strength needed to impact public policy. This book provides the blueprint for how the Hip Hop Generation can survive, thrive and make our nation more equitable and just."
--U.S. Congressman John Conyers, Detroit, Michigan
