Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series: DONNA BRAZILE
Tuesday, February 19 (Changed from 2/5) | 6:30 PM | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Intercultural Center
Join Tisch College for a conversation about contemporary politics, and about past and future presidential elections, with Donna Brazile, former Chair of the Democratic National Committee and one of the most astute political strategists in America. A veteran of Democratic politics and campaigns, Brazile worked on every presidential campaign from 1976 to 2000, when she was the first African American woman to run a presidential campaign when she served as campaign manager for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential bid. Known for her candor, she is a sought-after political commentator who has appeared on CNN and ABC; she is also a best-selling author of Hacks, which tells the inside story of Democratic Party machinations during the 2016 presidential election. Her recent book which she co-wrote, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics, was released last fall. The recipient of numerous awards including the Congressional Black Caucus’ highest award for political achievement, Brazile moonlights as an actress and has made cameo appearances on CBS’s The Good Wife, Netflix’s House of Cards, and BET’s Being Mary Jane.

Sponsored by Tisch College, the Africana Center, the Political Science Department, and the Tufts Democrats.
