Ali sharing his “25 Things I’ve Learned During My First 25 Years Of Marriage That Can Be Used To Improve The Police-Community Relationship,” more than two dozen reconciliation experts and social justice visionaries share their real-life experiences, lessons learned, best practices and refreshing ways to foster reconciliation in communities.  This book is the perfect study-guide to accompany the film “WALKING WHILE BLACK: L.O.V.E.
