Welcome to the fifth episode of Season 7 of The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Podcast!
Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Becky Pringle, President of the NEA, and Ebony Thornton, a high school teacher from Georgia. Going back to school this year is an unprecedented challenge-- and our guests are here to tell us the realities of getting kids back in classrooms in the middle of a pandemic.
The National Education Association (NEA) is the largest labor union in the USA, representing public school teachers and other support personnel, faculty, and staffers.
The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Podcast is all about amplifying the voices of women who are too often forgotten in media coverage. Host A’shanti Gholar leads conversations with women changing the face of politics. In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created a space for women of color to learn about the current state of politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible women changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and Wonder Media Network is thrilled to extend her platform to audio.
The Brown Girls Guide to Politics is produced by Wonder Media Network.
