With so much going on in America and around the world right now, being informed is now more crucial than ever. And this is especially true for women of color who are often ignored or taken for granted. Enter our featured podcast that reps for The Culture, The Brown Girls Guide to Politics.
The BGG to Politics is a one stop shop for women of color who want to hear and talk about the world of politics. The podcast is hosted by A’shanti Gholar who leads conversations with women changing the face of politics. Its focused on democratic and progressive politics. Episodes include interviews with politicians, candidates, and influencers. There are also roundtables, the analyzing of current events, and more.
Not content to only be a voice for women of color, the podcast is here to amplify that voice. Its main goals are to create a space for women of color to learn about the current state of women in politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible women doing their thing and changing the course of the country.
Specific episodes include an interview with Stacey Abrams, a listing of black female leaders of progressive organizations, and a guide to the 2020 election season. The Brown Girls Guide to Politics podcast is not only educational but inspirational. You’ll no doubt learn but you may also be moved to be more politically active (and even run for an office). And the more black women doing that, the better for us all.
