Too many brothers and sisters fake it ’til they make it: investing in clothes off the racks instead of bonds with Goldman Sachs; spending dough on a Cadillac instead of the mortgage in Hackensack. They sweat and fret, bogged down in credit-card debt. Now the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Jesse Junior have a new Operation PUSH, preaching economic empowerment with a little kick in the tush. It’s About the Money! charts a monetary scheme, which they call the “Fourth Movement” of the Rev. King’s dream. It offers an economic drive to keep hope alive. The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr. and Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. will read from and sign copies of It’s About the Money!: The Fourth Movement of the Freedom Symphony—How to Build Wealth, Get Access to Capital, and Achieve Your Financial Dreams at 6 p.m. at Martin Luther King Memorial Library’s Main Lobby, 901 G St. NW. Free. (202) 727-1211. (Elissa Silverman)
