Is politics the best way to make changes in your community? How can one find a political identity? What is the relationship between Black identity and the US political field?

Through reflection and recollection, author Stephen Graves explores these questions as he describes his journey from young Black student, to politician, to teaching at a university level – all as a way to engage with and effect change in his community. Focusing on the author’s lived experience, this book will bring life to political theory and studies of American politics.
