Praise for A Perilous Path
"A probing, provocative conversation on the national narrative in the Trump era. . . . The discussion presents a striking contrast between governmental initiatives today and those of the Obama administration while suggesting that if these are times of great struggle, they are also times of great determination and hope. . . . A wake-up call for the American dream."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Exactly the book we all need right now. A Perilous Path is a roundtable of four of the best civil rights minds in the country discussing their work, their lives, and the fight for justice that we need at this harrowing hour in U.S. history."

Praise for Bryan Stevenson:
"Bryan Stevenson is the Mandela of America."
