Andrew Young

Andrew Young has lived a dignified, accomplished life that has seen him march alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; work as a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; serve in Congress and work as mayor of Atlanta–and so much more.

Hence, the title of his must-have book, The Many Lives of Andrew Young, a table-top offering that chronicles from his childhood in New Orleans to Howard University as a boy of fifteen, from his work as a young pastor in Alabama to his leadership role in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, from serving as the first Black congressman from Georgia since Reconstruction and on and on.

Featuring hundreds of full-color photographs that capture the extraordinary life and times of Andrew Young and a captivating narrative by acclaimed Atlanta Journal- Constitution race reporter Ernie Suggs, who will lead the discussion at the the NBCC with Ambassador Young, is interspersed with personal accounts from Andrew Young himself, The Many Lives of Andrew Young is both a tribute to and an essential chronicle of the life of a man whose activism and service changed the face of America and whose work continues to reverberate around the world today. The book carries a foreword by President Jimmy Carter and an introduction by Gaurav Kumar, President of The Andrew J. Young Foundation. Visit to learn more.
