Obama is the leading edge of a sea change in American politics, but he is by no means the only story. Ifill offers incisive, detailed profiles of other prominent black leaders including Newart Major Cory Booker, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and U.S. Congressman Artur Davis of Alabama. She also covers up-and-coming figures from across the nation. Drawing on interviews with power brokers like Obama, former-Secretary of State Colin Powell, Vernon Jordan, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, and many others, as well as her own razor-sharp observations and analysis, Ifill shows why now is a pivotal moment in American history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ifill reports beyond [the] luminaries, drilling down to less-well-known African-American politicians on the state and local levels."
"--The New York Times"
"a strongly reported book, with some broad conclusions drawn from scores of interviews and peppered with interesting, revealing profiles. . . . Yet this is more than a book of connected profiles and narratives. Ifill bores at varying depths into race, class, gender and generational change."
"-Los Angeles Times"
Listeners will be rewarded by a well-researched, well-narrated take on the implications of President Obama s election on the strongholds of African-American political power.
"Publishers Weekly""
Ifill s great warmth, clear voice, and uncommon insights are sure to keep listeners engaged.
