The Confident Conservative
by Gianno Caldwell
From Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell, a timely and deeply personal book about how conservative values helped a kid from the South Side of Chicago find a life of opportunity Raised in poverty by his grandmother on the South Side of Chicago, Gianno Caldwell saw firsthand how lawmakers from both parties have failed African American voters on issues like poverty, welfare, and education. But as someone who beat the odds of growing up under a fear-based mentality that limits what people can achieve, Caldwell believes there's another way. In this groundbreaking book, the Fox News analyst tells his personal journey while casting a hopeful vision for a nation that is no longer beholden to identity politics and self-limitations. Trapped within the expectations and traditions of our communities, families, political parties, faith, race, and gender, we fail to challenge our politicians and ourselves to create real change. Now more than ever, we need to challenge preconceived notions about the two parties, public policy, and American history. From the obstacles facing urban communities on issues such as crime, education, and social mobility, Caldwell digs beneath the statistics, showing the moments that defined his rise to success and the steps that can help more people overcome the odds--whether through policy reform or the heroic efforts of men and women who are already working to make a difference in their own communities.
