Power Concedes Nothing by Connie Rice
This “fierce” and “remarkable memoir from one of the nation’s most influential and celebrated civil rights attorneys – second cousin of former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice – is “a rallying cry for social justice” (More Magazine). The Los Angeles Times praises the book – “Connie Rice has a big, important story to tell: of her passion, her history, her legal record and her connection to both the powerful and the underprivileged in Los Angeles.
Connie Rice is a graduate of Harvard College and New York University Law School. Ms. Rice’s career includes working to exonerate death-row inmates in Georgia, filing many class action civil rights cases, championing the building of new schools in an ineffective, overcrowded L.A. public-school systems and interacting with inner-city gangs and a dysfunctional LAPD.
