Happy New Year! In the spirit of looking forward, I wrote an essay about the launch  of Our Body Politic this year – and what’s coming next. Check it out here and let me know what you’re thinking.

This week on Our Body Politic, I spent more time with the sparkling roster of Our Body Politic contributors. Errin Haines of the 19th predicted the most important political stories of 2021 for women of color. Mutale Nkonde of AI for the People shared her secrets to envisioning success. Psychologist Dr. Ryan DeLapp offered advice to parents about having conversations on race and resilience with their children. Newsy reporter Casey Mendoza reflected on the successes and failures of 2020 in entertainment. And Forbes reporter Ruth Umoh looked back on how the year impacted Black women.
