Faculty Fellow Diane Pinderhughes (political science and Africana studies) was quoted in The Guardian article titled, “'Whatever it Takes': How Black Women Fought to Mobilize America's Voters.” The piece discusses how the organizational power of Black women has led to large-scale mobilization efforts, which appear to have resulted in massive turnout among people of color in the recent election.

Pinderhughes suggests that “a number of prominent Black women in leadership roles – such as Abrams, Nikema Williams, who took on John Lewis’s congressional seat and is chair of Georgia’s state Democratic party, and Atlanta’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms – helped fuel mobilization efforts among Black women this election.”
