The BGG Podcast - Freedom Summer With Congresswoman Barbara Lee

In this special season of The Brown Girls Guide to Politics, we are diving into the past and how it is impacting our present and future.

From protests to political campaigns, and youth involvement, change is in the air, and the fight for liberation continues.

We will be hearing from some of the Black women at the forefront of today’s movement who are fighting for change and making history to ensure that we have justice for all.

Today’s episode guest is Representative Barbara Lee, one of the most prominent Black members of Congress. She talks about the history of the Black Panther Party, community engagement, and America’s future.

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 The BGG platform to audio.

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