For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics

The four most powerful African American women in politics share the story of their friendship and how it has changed politics in America.

The lives of black women in American politics are remarkably absent from the shelves of bookstores and libraries. For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics is a sweeping view of American history from the vantage points of four women who have lived and worked behind the scenes in politics for over thirty years―Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore―a group of women who call themselves The Colored Girls. Like many people who have spent their careers in public service, they view their lives in four-year waves where presidential campaigns and elections have been common threads. For most of the Colored Girls, their story starts with Jesse Jackson’s first campaign for president. From there, they went on to work on the presidential campaigns of Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

National Black Wall Street of Chicago Chairman Mark Allen was mentioned in the book. Here is what he had to say about it! 


          "Emotional and humbling moment this weekend at Rainbow PUSH headquarters to reunite with, and give my personal and public thanks to Minyon Moore, one of the co authors of the new book "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics," who publicly mentions Mark Allen and his organizing work with her, along with Ken Bennett during our youth organizing for Chicago's first Black Mayor Harold Washington from PUSH. What an experience to see your name in the index of a best selling book!! And Btw, later on it was Minyon Moore who introduced me to "structured, focused and positioned," that I use. Now lol, I am going to eventually finish reading the whole book after reading these two pages 18-19 over and over. THANK YOU Minyon Moore. HEAR MY VOICE! God bless"
