REVEREND AL SHARPTON’S RISE UP THIS FALL RELEASING THIS FALL

rev_al_sharpton-200x300Hanover Square Press announced today plans to publish RISE UP: Confronting a Country at the Crossroads, by political and civil rights leader, founder of the National Action Network (NAN), and television and radio talk show host, Reverend Al Sharpton on September 15, 2020.

Peter Joseph, Editorial Director at Hanover Square Press, acquired World English + audio for the book from Josh Getzler and Jonathan Cobb at HG: Literary.

In RISE UP: Confronting a Country at the Crossroads, Rev. Al 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. He also amplifies the new voices and movements that have emerged in response to the Trump presidency.

Sharpton says, “I’m excited to come out with a book that will be one of the most important books of the year to really get people to understand the gravity of where we are as a nation; whether we will choose to continue the path of progress towards human rights and to value all people or whether we will choose the path of returning to a value system of where might is right and wealth is the measure of human value. This will be a must read for action that must be taken now.”

Joseph notes, “Rev. Sharpton possesses a singular perspective on today’s political environment, informed by his decades of activism and often close personal connection with the key players on our national stage. RISE UP comes at a crucial moment in American history, offering guidance and inspiration for readers who want a voice in where our country is headed.”

A profound examination of the American soul and a clarion call to action, RISE UP offers timeless lessons for anyone who’s stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choice of how to proceed.
