In an eye-opening look into the political forces that fueled the 2020 Democratic Nomination for President, King Maker examines the tentacles of hypocrisy and political partisanship, which underscore the never-ending struggle for power. An engrossing portrait of the political world’s varied dimensions, many unseen workings are divulged, and the story evolves to explore the odyssey of Honorable James E. Clyburn from his childhood in Sumter, South Carolina, to his current place on the forefront of America’s political stage.
A socially conscious mind throughout his youth, Clyburn surmounted many odds before rising to prominence as one of the most respected lawmakers in Congress. On the heels of Joseph Biden’s 2020 Democratic Nomination for President, Clyburn delivered a moving endorsement speech that would stir the passions of South Carolina’s African American cohort and conclusively tip the political scales in Biden’s favor. The story highlights Clyburn’s tremendous influence on political succession and reinforces his position as a 21st century Kingmaker. The book also lends several of its pages to exploring the life of Clyburn’s late wife, Dr. Em “Emily” Clyburn, and the invaluable contributions she made along his road to political eminence.
Extending its reach into the realm of women in politics, King Maker probes the role black women played in the 2020 elections and takes a special look at Stacey Abrams’s transformational movements in Georgia that facilitated the registration of millions of additional voters.
An informative and alluring exposé that uncovers the political gears that drive America’s democracy, King Maker: How Clyburn’s Endorsement Resuscitated Biden’s Democratic Nomination, reverberates the well-documented notion that behind every successful politician, there’s always a drive that pushes and encourages them, whatever that force may be.
