    Through personal anecdotes and painstaking research, Kevin Powell delivers an autobiography of America as well as revealing portraits of three important people in his lifetime. First, he offers an intimate look at his mother, a product of the American South who lived through segregation, classism, and sexism - and still succeeded in raising her son to become a strong Black man. Powell also reflects on the legacy of the 44th President and his evolution. Finally, drawing on his experience touring the South as an activist and public speaker, Powell observes the dynamic rise of President Trump’s popularity.
