Bestselling author, political analyst, and civil rights expert Juan Williams visits the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library to deliver a forceful critique of the Trump administration's ignorant and unprecedented rollback of the civil rights movement. The author will sign copies of his latest book, "What the Hell Do You Have to Lose?" after speaking at the Carter Library.
About the Book
In this powerful and timely book, Williams denounces Donald Trump for intentionally twisting history to fuel racial tensions for his political advantage. In Williams's lifetime, crusaders for civil rights have braved hatred, violence, and imprisonment, and in so doing made life immeasurably better for African Americans and other marginalized groups. Remarkably, all this progress suddenly seems to have been forgotten--or worse, undone. The stirring history of hard-fought and heroic battles for voting rights, integrated schools, and more is under direct threat from an administration dedicated to restricting these basic freedoms.
Williams pulls the fire alarm on the Trump administration's policies, which pose a threat to civil rights without precedent in modern America. "What the Hell Do You Have to Lose?" makes a searing case for the enduring value of our historic accomplishments and what happens if they are lost.
