Welcome to The Brown Girls Guide to Politics -- the one stop shop for women of color who want to hear and talk about the world of politics. On this episode, host A’shanti Gholar talks to former Vermont State Representative Kiah Morrris, who served as the only Black woman in the Vermont state legislature but resigned due to racist threats. This has not stopped Kiah from continuing to fight and uplift communities of color, and to encourage women of color to run for office and speak truth to power.
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 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 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 last year and Wonder Media Network is thrilled to extend her platform to audio.
The Brown Girls Guide is produced by Jenny Kaplan, Andi Kristins, and Tori Taylor. Original music was composed by Elisheba Ittoop.
