About the Book

Alisha Thomas Morgan made headlines in 2005 when she challenged the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives in a heated debate over voting rights - an unprecedented rebuke of the status quo turning the political landscape on its head. As some legislators shunned her, others demanded a public apology and some called for her expulsion, Morgan stood firm on her convictions, making no apologies for standing up for what was right.

Emerging victorious from this and similar political and personal challenges, Morgan has built a successful career and life. She continues to make no apologies and shares the lessons she has learned along her journey of trial and triumph in “No Apologies: Lessons in Life, Love & Politics”.

Whether you're looking for practical and honest advice to help you navigate your personal or professional trajectory, a dynamic tool to help focus your life, an inside look at politics, or some inspiration to get involved in your community, “No Apologies” gives you an unfiltered look into Morgan's life experiences teaching us lessons that transcend life, love, and politics.
