ENDORSEMENTS

“Greg Jarrell provides readers unique insight on issues related to racism, housing segregation, gentrification, and community building from his firsthand experiences as a community organizer on the ground in Charlotte, North Carolina . . . He moves it from the theoretical to the concrete by focusing on the humanity of those impacted by racial inequality, and includes an examination of his own personal learning process.”

Bree Newsome,

Charlotte-based artist and activist

"Through vivid, evocative language, and a propensity for connecting history to the present day, Jarrell made me fall in love with his neighborhood. There is no need quite so pressing as the challenge to learn to love our neighbors as ourselves in an unequal and unjust country such as the US, and Jarrell approaches this task with wisdom, humility, and humor.”

Greg's book reads like jazz: the rhythm and flow pull you into a whole different part of your heart and mind. And that's a good thing, because it helps us be present to things we might rather avoid but need to confront for the sake of our babies, the sake of our communities, and the sake of our humanity. What a gift to take this journey.
