about this book

We have been bombarded by images of the U.S. Secretary of State as the Great Diplomat, walking onto the tarmac of a foreign country as if she were a rock star, an intellectual giant, and the embodiment of the American dream all rolled into one. Meanwhile, she has spoken out against affirmative action, lied to the 9/11 Commission, defended a disastrous war in Iraq, and been the mouthpiece for an administration at its most shameful moments.

Who is she, and why does she hold such a special place in the national imagination? How does the Right use her to front racist and sexist policies in the U.S. and abroad? Why does the Left repress criticisms and thorough evaluations of one of the most influential people in Washington? Here is a compendium of think pieces, visual art, and imaginative works inspired by Dr. Condoleezza Rice.

Contributors include Amiri Baraka, Kate Bornstein, Ann Butler, Sue Coe, Wanda Coleman, Coco Fusco, hattie gossett, Rachel Holmes, Gary Indiana, Jason Mecier, Jill Nelson, Faith Ringgold, Paul Robeson, Jr., Sapphire, Astra Taylor, Kara Walker, and Haifa Zangana.

“Essential reading for Condi watchers or for those who want to get a better understanding of this enigmatic woman in the strange political times.” - Essence
