As long as the finish line is ahead, you always have the ability to shape your life no matter who you are, says civil rights leader Kweisi Mfume. He speaks from experience. As a youth lured by neighborhood street gangs, he threw himself into a life without promise for the future. Today, for Mfume, the sky's the limit. This inspiring story illuminates Mfume's pathway from street kid to college student, from radio announcer to political activist, from congressman to NAACP president. Mfume never forgets where he came from, and he now dedicates his considerable power and influence to making America a better place.
