"Daddy told me that the first time he saw me in the nursery, the other babies were just lying still, but I was trying to lift myself up . . . From that day on he was a ‘feminist’—there was nothing that his little girl couldn’t do, including learning to love football."
In this memoir designed for young audiences, Condoleezza tells the inspiring story of the ordinary parents who helped their daughter overcome legal discrimination in Birmingham to become the world's most powerful diplomat.
Condoleezza's father was a football coach + major fan. She grew up watching Alabama games on Saturday and Cleveland Browns games on Sunday. Hence, the NFL tapped the former secretary of state for an ad campaign featuring female fans...now, we want to see her be tapped as the league's commissioner!
