SOLOMON JONES

​author, TEN LIVES, TEN DEMANDS: Life and Death Stories, and a Black Activist's Blueprint for Racial Justice

#BlackLivesMatter.  But, how do we rectify racial injustice? Through his power as a storyteller and his skills as a journalist, Solomon Jones leverages his own life experience to resurrect ten people whose lives were ravaged by racism. His indictment of what he calls the Criminal “Injustice" System, will get you thinking about how YOU— how WE, together—can opt-in on a better plan.  In this discussion of his book, TEN LIVES TEN DEMANDS, he offers "Life and Death Stories and a Black Activist's Blueprint for Racial Justice"—an actionable plan “to repair our racist past, change the racist present, and bring justice to the future.”​
