Baker & Taylor
The author of "The Covenant with Black America" evaluates whether or not the goals outlined in his previous works have been realized and how politicians and citizens have responded to his challenge to accept responsibility for such issues as health care,education, and the environment.

Simon and Schuster
Accountable provides real-life examples of how crucial issues -- including health care, education, the economy, unequal justice, and the environment -- manifest themselves in our communities. The book demonstrates the urgent need to hold politicians and ourselves responsible, because the stakes have never been higher. Accountable examines present-day conditions and the consequences for America. At its core, this book is a tool with which the community can evaluate the successes or failures of its political leaders and of itself. This insightful book acknowledges the mistakes of the past while offering hope and inspiration for a better future.
