Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore are four of the most influential African American women in the United States. Together, they call themselves the Colored Girls. As political strategists, organizers, CEOs, and more, they have made history and shaped politics. Yet their story, like the stories of so many African American women in politics, is largely absent from the mainstream. In their new book, FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED POLITICS (St. Martin’s Press; October 2, 2018), written with Veronica Chambers, these four trailblazers share their personal journeys, marked by phenomenal successes and milestones, and offer a roadmap for other women of color with political ambitions.
Join these four women for an incredible afternoon as they discuss today's political climate and the need for black women and youth to become engaged in the political process.
