“I am looking forward to kicking off our virtual tour in my hometown. There’s no place like New Orleans in the world and it has to start here,” says Morial. “Small businesses are the backbone of our communities and I recognize the importance of supporting independent, locally owned and operated bookstores on this tour. I will be at each of the bookstores (Community Book Center and Blue Cypress Books) communicating with patrons via Facebook Live.”
Our nation at its core has been broken and Marc H. Morial has written a book that is exactly what coalition builders, leaders, educators, students, government official and entities need right now.
