"Twists of Fate" explores the unique experiences of racial minority members of the House of Representatives in providing much-needed resources for their economically disadvantaged constituencies, while also facing marginalization during the policy formulation process on Capitol Hill. Author Vanessa C. Tyson draws on personal experiences to highlight the successful strategies adopted by Black, Hispanic, and Asian Pacific American Caucuses in building cross-racial coalitions and advocating for equality and social justice beyond "traditional" issues of race and ethnicity. This compelling model illustrates how diverse groups can work together for hopeful political futures.
