Black women in politics: Watch live

From their voting habits to their leadership roles, Black women play a defining role in our political system. Over the last few years, more and more Black women have made history, and their roles and voices are being recognized in newfound ways — and it’s leading to change. 

What are the top issues for Black women ahead of the 2024 election? What more needs to be done to increase Black female representation in politics on all levels, and what are the barriers? What is the power of the Black vote, and how does it impact our politics going forward? 

The Hill will bring together current and former Black women holding office, who make up different aspects of our political world, to share what it means to be a Black woman in politics.

The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. EDT.
