The Condoleezza Rice StoryLarge Print - 2005
This is the remarkable and galvanizing true story of Condoleezza Rice -- National Security Advisor, close confidante to President George W. Bush, and the most influential woman in American political history. Drawing from exclusive interviews with dozens of friends, relatives, colleagues, and teachers as well as scores of previous articles and interviews, national bestselling author Antonia Felix paints a compelling portrait of a born leader of resolute character who broke all barriers to excel as a black woman in an arena usually dominated by white men. From her childhood in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, where her parents fostered a love of learning and excellence at an early age, to her rise through the political ranks to the halls of power in Washington, D.C., CONDI is a fascinating look at the past, present, and possible future of the most powerful woman in politics.
