The Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy will host Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore, the authors of “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics” for a discussion and book signing. The event will take place on Wednesday, January 23rd at 7:00PM in the Social Room at the Healey Family Student Center on the main campus.
In a conversation moderated by Jonathan Capehart, a GU Politics Fellow and a journalist with the Washington Post, the authors will detail their time at the center of Democratic national politics from the time of Jesse Jackson’s unsuccessful run for the presidency in 1984 to the Bill Clinton White House to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s historic 2016 nomination. The event will also highlight the unique friendship of four African-American women and their rise to national prominence. The book also provides advice for young people, like our Georgetown students, interested in politics.
Donna Brazile is the former Chair of the Democratic Party and campaign manager for Al Gore for President in 2000. Yolanda Caraway is the former Director of the DNC’s Fairness Commission and Chief of Staff for Jesse Jackson for President in 1988. Leah Daughtry is the former CEO of the 2016 and 2008 Democratic National Convention Committees, and Chief of Staff to Howard Dean, when he was Chair of the DNC.
