In fact, the last one to manage it--biracial, the child of divorce, raised with little money by a single mother--became our 44th president." --The New York Times Book Review"Stacey Abrams writes about her personal cocktail of grit and gumption." --Glamour"Stacey didn't write Minority Leader simply to help people in the minority; she wrote it because she believes people in the minority can help us all." --Teen Vogue"Stacey Abrams has everything you want in a candidate: a good legal mind, experience in governance, and a deep knowledge of poverty and hard work. If you read Minority Leader, you will discover she also has the superpowers of inspiring trust and knowing how to organize. You will have her as a friend, and you will want her as a governor." --Gloria SteinemThis item is Not Returnable.
