The BGG Podcast - DeJuana Thompson: “Your voice is critical.”


The BGG podcast is back for Season 3! We are collaborating with She The People to highlight their 20 women of color to watch in 2020!


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 with DeJuana Thompson, the creator of Woke Vote, a program to train new organizers and engage historically disengaged voters across the South. They discuss state leadership, organizing in the South, and changing the communities affected by historic disfranchisement. This episode is sponsored by ActBlue.


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.
