The BGG Podcast - Jennifer Carroll Foy: “Let’s run and win!”

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. In this season finale, host A’shanti Gholar speaks with Virginia Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy about her career at the Virginia Military Institute, her work on Virginia’s passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, and her historic campaign to be both the first woman governor of Virginia and the first Black woman governor in the country.

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.
