The BGG Podcast - Aimee Allison & Joy-Ann Reid: “Do Not Be Afraid To Show Up"

The BGG podcast is back for Season 3!

The Brown Girl's Guide to Politics Podcast is all about amplifying the voices of women who are too often forgotten in media coverage. Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Aimee Allison, Founder and President of She the People, and Joy-Ann Reid, the host of MSNBC's AM Joy. They discuss the importance and power of political engagement for women of color.

In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created 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 people changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and teamed up with Wonder Media Network in 2019 to extend her platform to audio.

The Brown Girls Guide is produced by Cinthia Pimentel. Original music was composed by Elisheba Ittoop.
