Event description

Description

Known as the “Colored Girls”, Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore are four of the most influential African American women in United States politics. As political strategists, organizers, CEOs, and more, they have made history and left an imprint on America’s political culture. Yet their stories, like those of so many African American women, are largely absent from the mainstream—until now. Join moderator Rebecca Carroll and these remarkable women as they discuss their lives and political legacies, captured in the new book For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics, written with Veronica Chambers.

Rebecca Carroll is a cultural critic and Editor of Special Projects at WNYC New York Public Radio, where she develops, produces and hosts a broad array of multi-platform content, including REBEL, her weekly conversation series on race and culture for WNYC's Morning Edition. Rebecca is also a critic-at-large for the Los Angeles Times, and a regular columnist at Shondaland.com. She is the author of several interview-based books about race and blackness in America, and her personal essays, cultural commentary and opinion pieces have been published widely.
