Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988960303, Paperback)The Old School Speaks Series hones the much-coveted term used for respected elders in the Black community. Dr. John Y. Odom explains his ownership of the word in the Introduction of the first book within the series, The Old School Speaks: Vote Every Time... "Being older doesn't mean being frozen in time, and it doesn't mean quietly taking one's place on the dusty shelf of a museum. A large part of the problem is that old school members of society haven't said enough. We haven't provided enough guidance or coaching: we haven't shared enough of the truth about our stories and our struggles." Written to uprising millennials, The Old School Speaks: Vote Every Time, is a step by step handbook to understanding the importance of the African American vote, laced with thought provoking quotes from political and social figures such as Reverend Jesse Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, and Marian Wright Edelman. The book details 18 steps citizens should take to ensure active voter advocacy. Enriched with insight and guidance on the history and future of voting, this is a must read.
