Reseña del editor:

Ronald ‘Moe’ Moten's book, Drinking Muddy Water: The Streets, the Scandals, the Party of Lincoln is a journey through urban America from the beginning of the violent crack cocaine era of the 80's and 90's through his groundbreaking success in violent crime reduction and gang intervention as co-founder of Peaceoholics to the "politricks" and scandals of Washington, D.C. politicians. Readers get an inside look at the life of a street-smart native Washingtonian who came out of prison committed to a life of helping others. He learned nonviolent peacemaking from great civil rights leaders and used those lessons as co-founder of the famed Peaceoholics gang intervention organization.

In spite of the great success of Peaceoholics, including negotiating forty-one peace agreements between violent gangs, self-serving politicians used every form of "Politricks" against Peaceoholics and against Ron as its public face. He reveals the truth about the corrupt officials who defunded Peaceoholics and exploited their own most vulnerable constituents. Finally, he answers two questions, first, how was he and Peaceoholics so successful at helping change the culture of violence among youth in the Nation's Capital? Second, how the hell could a black man in America be a Civil Rights Republican!

Also included in the book are ten lessons proven to uplift disenfranchised urban Americans, a detailed analysis about unaddressed gun violence in the African-American community, and a critique on the current discussions on race and politics.

Biografía del autor:

Ronald Moten is best known as the co-founder of Peaceoholics, the famed and highly effective gang intervention and violence prevention organization. He was a political strategist for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and has been called a local “media mogul.” Ron surprised the political establishment when he left the Democratic Party and became a Civil Rights Republican, a phrase he coined. The book’s title came from lessons he learned from his mentors in the Civil Rights Movement, many of whom were, to his surprise, Republicans. They worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and told Ron that if he was going to continue the work that they started, he was going to have to learn to “drink muddy water.” It is his strongly held belief that the black community needs to have a balanced presence in both parties in a two-party political system. Ron is on common ground with the principles of great Civil Rights Republicans such as Frederick Douglass, Jack Kemp, Nannie Helen Burroughs, and Abraham Lincoln.
