Post 1965 Voting Rights Act, Pre-Obama Era: The Jesse Jackson Run for President
Preston Love, Jr., has two distinct perspectives on our civil rights history. He shares within this short book the interrelationship of these two perspectives and how they converge. First and above all, is his perspective that is derived from his personal life experience. Secondly, his perspective comes as an amateur historian and a University Adjunct Professor creating a course and teaching the African American experience in politics.
This book takes a picture of those two perspectives with an emphasis on presidential politics and is organized in the reverse. Section I sets the stage by relating the interrelationship with some of the factors that created the initial black presidential history. Section II focuses on the sliver of time where he played a direct role.
