Brian's new book exposes over 40 years of economic injustice in underserved communities in Birmingham. It covers topics such as (1) How Black political leaders enrich White businesses at the expense of their own, (2) The Affirmative Action fight for Black Construction Contractors nationwide, (3) Modern Day Real Estate Redlining, and (4) Brian's letters to the FBI and other agencies regarding public corruption in Birmingham, AL today.
