Evening From the Archives: Women's History Month Special—For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics
In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re diving into our program archives throughout the month of March to highlight some of our staff favorites from the last few years. From Mae Jemison, the first black woman to travel to space and a tireless advocate for women involvement in STEM education, to Madeleine Albright, the first woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State, we’ve been honored to have trailblazing women join us onstage over the years.
We’re kicking off this month by re-visiting one of our favorite programs of the last few years. In late 2018, political strategists and activists Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Rev. Leah Daughtry and Minyon Moore joined us in San Francisco to discuss their newly-published book, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics. Dubbed “the four most powerful African American women in politics,” they share a bond that has carried them through presidential campaigns across four decades and lifted them into the halls of power in America. They joined Commonwealth Club board member LaDoris Cordell for a candid conversation.
Join us for an Evening from the Archives special, and join the live chat to talk about the program and the club with other members and supporters.
