Book About Booker

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Professor Dr. Jonathan Wharton is the author of a new book about Senator Cory Booker titled “A Post-Racial Change is Gonna Come”.

Dr. Wharton researched Senator Booker for over 12 years in order to write the book. He said that the book includes more than just interviews with him, but it also has information obtained from sit-downs with Booker’s colleagues on the city council.

“One thing I think that can be a take away with this is the perceptions of him especially on the City Council side. They all have different kind of viewpoints in terms of leadership and some of his dynamics and some of his charisma and community and economic development,” Wharton said.

As far as Booker’s “political enemies”, Wharton spoke to Mildred Crump about some of her concerns that surround Booker as senator. This includes Bookers charisma that stands out and his “machines”, as opposed to doing his duties of addressing significant issues.

Newark’s current acting Mayor Luis Quintana is also featured in the book as well as councilmen Anibal Ramos. One thing that they spoke about is that Booker likes the attention that he gets, However, one thing that they both do recognize is his great sense of idealism.

Wharton said that Quintana and Ramos both voiced their concerns not so much about what Booker stands for, but about the people that are around him.
