8 awesome Black women in political media. Gwen Ifill, Melissa Harris-Perry, Goldie Taylor, Tamron Hall, Anthea Butler, Donna Brazile, Zerlina Maxwell, and Joy Reid. They’re smart, educated, accomplished, and insightful. Some have previous media experience and writing/publishing experience as well as activist work. I appreciate their voices, whether their particular views on a topic matches mine or not—their voices are important.
Gwen Ifill, Melissa Harris-Perry and Tamron Hall have their own shows; Washington Week, The Melissa Harris-Perry Show and NewsNation, respectively. Donna Brazile is a CNN commentator and political strategist/analyst. Goldie Taylor frequents MSNBC shows for cultural criticism and political commentary. Anthea Butler is a frequent political analyst guest on The Melissa Harris-Perry Show and Joy Reid frequents MSNBC shows and was recently on an episode of Meet The Press.
