“On Sept. 15, 1982, USA TODAY was founded on a commitment ‘to serve as a forum for better understanding and unity’ across the USA, and the editors of The Nation’s Newspaper pursue that goal in every edition.
“The daily Opinion and Inquiry pages of USA TODAY play a key role in the pursuit and so does Barbara Reynolds, editor of the Inquiry page and a member of the Opinion page editorial board.
“This book, And Still We Rise, represents a special segment of Ms. Reynold’s share in the USA TODAY commitment — a collection of her interviews with 50 black men and women whose achievements make them strong role models for everyone.
“The success stories of these 50 leaders provide the facts and some of the frustrations. They offer ideas and inspiration. They share words of warnings and examples of courage for all who care to follow these footsteps of achievement.
“USA TODAY is proud of the contributions to its pages by Ms. Reynolds and is pleased to share these selections of her work.”
