"[Peterson] chronicles the transformation of the civil rights challenges facing America, and points the way out of our racial dilemma."--Dinesh D'Souza
"A powerful and insightful critique of the ideology steadily destroying the American social fabric. From schoolteachers to politicians to parents and pastors, everyone should listen to these important lessons."--Muazzam Gill, The National Educator
"From Rage to Responsibility does what the entire field of American sociology fails to do. It makes the point that traditional values are transformative in themselves and, therefore, the best antidotes to social dysfunction. Peterson knows what the sociologists miss: that black Americans are simply human beings who find themselves, like all human beings, through the structure, struggle, and sacrifice of living by demanding values. This is the story of a man's return to a wisdom he already had. It is an inspiration to read."―Shelby Steele, author of the #1 national bestsellers The Content of Our Character and A Dream Deferred; Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution
"From Rage to Responsibility is more than the story of one man's political odyssey. It chronicles the transformation of the civil rights challenges facing America, and points the way out of our racial dilemma."―Dinesh D'Souza, author of the #1 national bestsellers Illiberal Education and The End of Racism; Senior Fellow, The American Enterprise Institute
"Jesse Lee Peterson knows from his own experience how devastating the absence of fathers has been for black children, and in From Rage to Responsibility he boldly points the way to a loving solution."―Adam Meyerson, Vice-President, The Heritage Foundation
With From Rage to Responsibility, Jesse Lee Peterson offers his dynamic antidote to the failed message of the likes of Farrakhan, Jackson, and Sharpton. It is quite simply a must read. This is the medicine necessary to bring about true racial healing in America, and to lift up those who've been left behind."―Sean Hannity, Co-host, "Hannity and Colmes," Fox News Network Host, WABC Radio, New York City
