Sixty-five U.S. Secretaries of State preceded Condoleezza Rice, but only one of them was a woman and only one of them was black. Rice went into record books as the first black woman to be hold that post, but she made history in even more significant ways. As the trusted advisor of two American presidents, she participated decisions at the highest levels, making her rise from her middle-class childhood in segregation-ridden Birmingham, Alabama even more dramatic. This young adult version of her family memoir possesses a relevance that cuts across party lines.
