Virtual Event

Join a post-election conversation with LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund and co-founder of the Southern Black Girls Consortium.

Ms. Brown is a 2020-2021 Hauser Leader at the Center for Public Leadership and a 2020-2021 American Democracy Fellow at Harvard's Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History. Throughout the 2020 U.S. election, Ms. Brown led the We Got the Power bus tour across the U.S. South to register people to vote and galvanize Black voter participation. In a recent interview, Ms. Brown said "We wanted people, we wanted Black voters in particular, to feel a sense of their power and their agency, and in spite of all odds, what we could do in pushing this country forward."

This event will be moderated by Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Professor of History, Race and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and the Suzanne Young Murray Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies.
