Aoc: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Aoc: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - Lynda Lopez

Aoc: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez


With a preface by Keegan-Michael Key

In the vein of Notorious RBG, seventeen writers explore the multiple meanings of a young Latina politician who has already made history.

From the moment Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat a ten-term incumbent in the primary election for New York's 14th, her journey to the national, if not world, stage, was fast-tracked. Six months later, as the youngest Congresswoman ever elected, AOC became one of a handful of Latina politicians in Washington, D.C. Just thirty, she represents her generation, the millennials, in many groundbreaking ways: proudly working class, Democratic Socialist, of Puerto Rican descent, master of social media, not to mention of the Bronx, feminist--and a great dancer.

AOC investigates her symbolic and personal significance for so many, from her willingness to use her imperfect bi-lingualism, to the threat she poses by governing like a man, to the long history of Puerto Rican activism that she joins. Contributors span a wide range of voices and ages, from media to the arts and politics:
