“I hope when you put this book down, you don’t see Al Sharpton differently, but you instead see yourself differently.” – Rev. Al Sharpton
June 27, 2013 – New York – Television host and political activist, Reverend Al Sharpton, is set to release his first book in over ten years, The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership. In stores on October 8, 2013, the book will be published through a joint venture partnership between Cash Money Content, the publishing arm of premier record label Cash Money Records and Massenburg Media, in partnership with Atria/Simon & Schuster. In the book, Reverend Al intimately discusses his personal evolution from street activist, pulpit provocateur and civil rights leader, to the larger-than-life man he is today, while providing a series of essential life lessons that readers can adopt to transform their own lives.
“From the Central Park Five to gay & lesbian rights to the immigration debates, I have prided myself on taking the side of the rejected people,” says Reverend Al Sharpton, “and so I decided to call this book The Rejected Stone,” from a passage of scripture which refers to a stone which was rejected by builders that, in the end, became the chief cornerstone. “In the end, that sums up my life’s journey and so many of my people,” says Reverend Al.
“It’s such an honor to be publishing the Reverend’s powerful new book. He has been the voice for people like me who started at the bottom and had dreams of making it to the top,” says Ronald “Slim” Williams, co-founder of Cash Money Records and Cash Money Content.
(Odd how Sharpton is choosing a publishing company owned by gangsta rappers and whose CEO is Lil Wayne, as Sharpton is no friend of hip hop.)
