Attorney Carlos E. Moore's New Powerful Memoir Debuts as #1 New Release
"I could not have that flag displayed behind me as I attempted to administer justice," Carlos E. Moore, co-author and one of The Five Brothers, states as he recounts his first day of becoming the first African-American Municipal Judge Pro Tem for the city of Clarksdale, Mississippi. Carlos ordered officials to remove the state flag from his courtroom as it did not represent justice for people of color. His powerful leadership in fighting for justice is evident throughout his new compelling memoir, recounting his life as a Black man in a world meant to act against him.
Carlos E. Moore describes the now-retired Mississippi state flag that disturbingly held the Confederate emblem as representing "the subjugation of my people, lynchings, murder, and enslavement." He continued to state, "We're supposed to honor that flag in spite of what it stands for? My little daughter is expected to honor that flag? No." Mississippi became the last state to retire the flag. From finding out heart-wrenching news at only 8-years-old to opening his own law firm, Carlos captivates readers through his journey in becoming a successful black man in America.
