After decades of false promises and marginalization by the public school system, African-American communities around the country are demanding a solution to the education crisis.

What will it take to obtain educational equality?In this compelling book, Milwaukee Community Journal editor Mikel Holt recounts the milwaukee communitys answer: empowering parents to choose their childrens schools. Documenting through facts, statistics, and personal accounts the lack of real educational opportunity in Milwaukee, Holt tells what went wrong with public school system solutions and chronicles the hard-won battle for school choice.

Along the way, Holt exposes bureaucratic corruption and media bias, chronicles the opposition of powerful players such as the teachers union and NAACP, unravels intricate legal tangles, and explores the leadership challenges facing the African-American community.As a parent, journalist, and a school choice activist, Holt has a uniquely informed perspective.

Holt is not afraid to ask the hard questions, and his powerful voice makes this book a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of this countrys children. Not Yet Free at Last will generate a national debate as Holt comes face to face with the NAACP, which systematically opposes school choice.
