By now, America has heard of the blue Democratic wave that surged in 2018, in large part to the constant support and advocacy of African American women.
No group of women could have been prouder than the authors of “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics,” Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore. Together, these four women are considered by many as the most powerful African American women in politics.
“For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics” is a fascinating joint memoir of four girlfriends who got into politics in the 1960s and ’70s and are now the rare Washington insiders who understand people from all areas of the nation.
The book came out in October and since its release the four ladies have embarked on a national book tour. The tour recently made a four event stop in Los Angeles in partnership with Eso Won Books, the National Council of Negro Women and the Los Angeles Sentinel. The ladies also had help from their girlfriends Barbara Perkins and Glenda Gill.
The ladies’ first Los Angeles stop was a “sister circle conversation” recording for Los Angeles Sentinel viewers, which is now available at www.lasentinel.net. Their next stop was the African American Voter Rep offices, where a line was wrapped outside the venue awaiting their arrival. Later the ladies were received by former BET chairwoman Barbara Lee for an intimate gathering.
The next day the ladies were hosted by AT&T assistant vice president Tanya Lombard and Creative Artist Agency (CAA) executive Alex Avant in Woodland Hills, CA, the event included a Q&A moderated by Hill Harper, along with a book signing with the authors.
Attendees to all events were eager to snap photos and have their books signed by the four women who have dedicated their lives to advocacy and service. The book is available locally at Eso Won Books and available online on all mediums that sell books.
