Community Wealth Building and the Reconstruction of American Democracy

Edited by Melody C. Barnes, Co-Director of the Democracy Initiative, Dorothy Danforth Compton Professor and Professor of Practice in the Miller Center of Public Affairs, and a Distinguished Fellow in the School of Law at the University of Virginia, Corey D.B. Walker, Wake Forest Professor of the Humanities, Wake Forest University and Thad M. Williamson, Associate Professor of Leadership Studies and Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Law, University of Richmond, US

How can we create and sustain an America that never was, but should be? How can we build a robust multiracial democracy in which everyone is valued and everyone possesses political, economic and social capital? How can democracy become a meaningful way of life, for all citizens? By critically probing these questions, the editors of Community Wealth Building and the Reconstruction of American Democracy seize the opportunity to bridge the gap between our democratic aspirations and our current reality.

Contributors include Barbara Brown Wilson, Faculty Director of the Equity Center.
