A clear view of what is,
A hopeful perspective of what could be,
And a realistic vision of how to alter the future.

Preston began his quest for clarity with his return to his beloved hometown of Omaha to be with his ailing mother, Betty Love, in 2006 after the death of his famous father, Preston Love, Sr.

The condition of his section of town, North Omaha, where almost all of the fifty thousand African-Americans live in Omaha was shocking, and became the #1 priority for Love, Jr.. Economic Cataracts brings together a collection of position papers and initiatives by the author, directed toward making a difference where a difference is needed. While Preston’s story is based in his hometown, Omaha, Nebraska, there are lessons, there are premises, there are actions, and there is wisdom in these approaches that can apply in every urban setting in America. Preston offers this snapshot as a framework for others to reference.

About the Author:

Preston Love Jr. is a community and political activist. He worked for key political figures such as Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young and Chicago Mayor Harold Washington. He was campaign manager for The Reverend Jesse Jackson, the first Black man to run for President of the United States. Preston Love Jr. pursued work in the civil rights movement early in his career and is passionate about continuing his work in his hometown neighborhood of North Omaha. He is presently teaching politics at the University of Nebraska–Omaha. He graduated with a degree in economics from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 1966. He played football for the Big Red and Bob Devaney and played in both the Orange and Cotton Bowls.

Review:

Preston Love, Jr., sacrifices personal gain in his efforts and commitments to his North Omaha community, without financial reward or the associated gratitude. His book defines the challenges and key efforts directed toward solutions. It is important reading for all people of conscience. --Dave Domina, lawyer and recent candidate for the United States Senate (Nebraska)
