Recent elections have brought attention to both the value and disregard of the Black women's vote. As we move toward the celebration of the centennial of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote, we take a look at the role of Black women as suffragists, activists, voters, and political leaders.

Join Gloria Browne-Marshall, JD, MA, Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, along with moderator Krysta Jones, founder and CEO of Vote Lead Impact, Inc., as she discusses the power of Black women voters, and how we can leverage all voters to create better public policy for all.
