Episode Notes

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 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.

This episode of The Brown Girls Guide was produced by Jenny Kaplan, Andi Kristins, and Alli Lindenberg. Original music was composed by Elisheba Ittoop.
