In this rousing call to leadership, the self-described millennial spokesperson for the culture, CNNA??s designated "woke AF" former commentator, and the youngest national press secretary in the history of the United States shares her take-no-prisoners approach to life, politics, and career success, and shows a new generation how to be loud and powerful in their own right.
Many peopleA??most notably white older menA??may try to stop Symone Sanders from speaking up and out. But Symone will NOT shut up. And neither should you. In this inspiring call-to-action, Symone tells stories from her own life of not-shutting-up alongside loud young revolutionaries who came before her to help you find your authentic voice and use it to your advantage; to fight ideological battles more effectively; and to resist those who try to silence you.
We are all gurus, masterminds, artists, entrepreneursA??we are the change agents we have been waiting for. IT IS US. And the time is RIGHT NOW. I know youA??re wondering, A??But HOW?A? And we donA??t have all the answers! Symone is the first to admit weA??re all winging it in one way or another. But the point is weA??re out there doing it. So get started. Open your mouth and start talking. Loudly.
No You Shut Up goes beyond the surplus of A??Vote-Or-DieA? books weA??ve seen before. Because change doesnA??t just happen at the ballot box. We need people fighting oppression, injustice, and inequalityA??in the workplace, on the cultural battlefield, in government, in every corner of the world. With spirited storytelling filtered through a voice that cannot and will not be ignored, Symone inspires you to start now. You donA??t need to have all the answers, or wait your turn to help create the change you want to see. All you need is a new toolbox, an unshakeable commitment, and the confidence and guidance to wield those tools effectively.
