For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics is a look at American history through the eyes of four women who have lived, and worked behind the scenes in American politics for more than thirty years and call themselves the Colored Girls-Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore. The Colored Girls have worked on the presidential campaigns of Jesse Jackson, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Barack Obama, and Hillary Rodham Clinton. In between the elections, they worked at the top of the corporate world, in unions, in churches, in their own businesses, and with people outside the Oval Office who have shaped our country’s history like Howard Dean, Rev. Herbert Daughtry, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz, and Terry McAuliffe. For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics is a portrait of four women who are always focused on the larger goal of, as they put it, “hurrying history” so that every American-regardless of race, gender, or religious background-can have a seat at the table. Their lives are part of our history. Their voices point to our future.
