Ann Richards and Dolly Parton meet at the Driskill Hotel, 1982. Photo by Scott Newton.As the governor of Texas, Ann Richards (pictured left here) appointed more women, openly gay people, and people of color than all of her predecessors combined. We talked to her daughter Cecile Richards today about the legacy her mother left and about the new HBO documentary, ALL ABOUT ANN.
Richards was an amazing gov. I got to live in Austin just after her reign & see firsthand the disgusting redneck bs that her successor - GW Bush - brought to that state before taking over the country.
Can’t wait to try this guy’s menu. #tavernonthegreen
