Quick Overview:

In Come On, People, Bill Cosby and Alvin F. Poussaint tell an inspiring story about human beings fighting hardships and succeeding. It is a story about strong, resilient people who have overcome poverty and mistreatment. Come On, People will encourage you to set aside excuses and make a better life today—for you, for your children, for your community, and for your future.
 

Bill Cosby and Alvin F. Poussaint have a powerful message for families and communities as they lay out their visions for strengthening America, or for that matter the world. They address the crises of people who are stuck because of feelings of low self-esteem, abandonment, anger, fearfulness, sadness, and feelings of being used, undefended and unprotected. These feelings often impede their ability to move forward. The authors aim to help empower people make the daunting transition from victims to victors. Come On, People! is always engaging, and loaded with heart-piercing stories of the problems facing many communities.

About the Contributor(s) Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby is one of the most influential performers of the last half century.

A crusader throughout his career, his success is complemented by involvement with a host of charitable, education, and civil rights organizations.
