We strive to ensure that OZY readers hear from a wide range of voices and perspectives — a particularly important mission given today’s polarized political climate. That’s why we reach out to interesting, impactful figures from around the globe and across the political spectrum.
Today, Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry and Minyon Moore — they call themselves “The Colored Girls” — join the ranks of OZY guest editors like Sen. Marco Rubio and Hasan Minhaj to share the news that’s most on their mind. These four prominent African-American women have been on the front lines of American political history for the past three decades. They’ve just released a new book, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics, offering a glimpse at their friendships and career decisions, as well as tips on how to enter a life of public service.
