Against the backdrop of Senator Kamala Harris’ historic run for president of the United States, The New York Times asked the question “What does this country demand of Black women in politics?”

In this discussion, we will dive into the subject with a powerhouse panel of Black women officials and strategists. The conversation will explore the expectations and demands of Black women who take the step into public service.

What makes the journey so unique? What makes it challenging and what it will take to clear the final hurdle into the White House?

Please come join this livestream event.
