Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ronald Moten is best known as the co-founder of Peaceoholics, the famed and highly effective gang intervention and violence prevention organization. He was a political strategist for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and has been called a local “media mogul.” Ron surprised the political establishment when he left the Democratic Party and became a Civil Rights Republican, a phrase he coined. The book’s title came from lessons he learned from his mentors in the Civil Rights Movement, many of whom were, to his surprise, Republicans. They worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and told Ron that if he was going to continue the work that they started, he was going to have to learn to “drink muddy water.” It is his strongly held belief that the black community needs to have a balanced presence in both parties in a two-party political system. Ron is on common ground with the principles of great Civil Rights Republicans such as Frederick Douglass, Jack Kemp, Nannie Helen Burroughs, and Abraham Lincoln.
