“All About Ann”: Fiesty, fiery, fearless, a force of nature . . . and funny as hell. These are just some of the words used to describe Ann Richards, one of the most charismatic American political figures of the last 30 years. This portrait chronicles the life of the liberal Richards who rose to power in a conservative state, effecting sweeping state reforms while becoming a beloved national icon.
