On January 15, 1975, the Reverend Jesse Jackson was leading a demonstration around the White House to protest the lack of jobs for black youths. As the demonstrators marched, Jackson was shocked to discover that many of the black youths marching with him were drunk or on drugs, many of them "out of control." Abruptly, he called a halt to the demonstration and sent the marchers home. Within a few months, Jackson launched a national campaign in the urban high schools of the nation to save the black youths of his country, to get them off drugs and motivate them to work hard, study in school, develop self-discipline, and become successful in American society. A program called PUSH for Excellence, or PUSH/Excel, was an outgrowth of his Operation PUSH organization. How could something so promising end in such failure? Lots of explanations, mostly accusations, were attempted at the time, but they contradicted one another. In this book the author attempts to describe the events and analyze why they occurred

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I will always remember the day Emmett was born. It was July 25, 1941. A Friday. But I’m getting a little ahead of my story, because this is not where it really begins. My mother had brought me to the hospital on Wednesday. #2 The birth was a breech birth, meaning the baby was coming butt first. The agony was so severe, I thought there could be no greater pain than giving birth to a child. #3 I had decided that I wanted a boy first, then a girl, then another boy, then another girl. So I was excited to have a boy when I gave birth. But when I looked at his skin color, blond hair, and blue eyes, I knew right away that he wasn’t a boy. #4 The author’s mother did not prepare her for the world outside their home. When the author became pregnant at age 16, her mother simply dismissed it and didn’t explain how babies were made.
