HOW TO LEAD WHEN NO ONE FOLLOWS
Jerry L. Maynard, IIAfter electing the first African-American President of the United States, and after significant progress in the election of African –American leaders as mayors and state governors, why haven’t our communities felt the benefits? Instead, the African-American community endures the highest rate of prison incarceration, high school drop-out rates, high unemployment, and healthcare disparities since the 1970’s. Jerry L. Maynard, II issues a call to action to reverse the crises facing the African-American community and to issue a declaration that getting reelected is not a measurable outcome of political success, rather improving the lives of our citizens.How To Lead When No One Follows is a rebuke of a failed system of political leadership and an admonishment to the Black community to demand more of its leaders, and more importantly, itself. Jerry Maynard has fought for the Black community as a lawyer, politician, and pastor. This book is a manifesto invoked by his passion for equality and empowerment.
