Donna Brazile Stirs Pot at Loyola Tonight


Polarized politics are on the rise in Louisiana, and Kenner native Donna Brazile is coming to Loyola to cook up some controversy. The university snagged the political pundit and big shot academic to give a lecture in her home state, and everyone is welcome to come to tonight’s free event.

 

Brazile spends most of her time these days as a political commentator for CNN, but she’s been paving the way for powerful women since she was only nine years old. Brazile devoted her life to politics after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., and she has worked on every presidential campaign between 1976 and 2000. Brazile currently serves as the Vice Chair for Voter Registration and Participation at the Democratic National Convention

 

The multi-talented activist published her best-selling memoir, Cooking with Grease: Stirring the Pots in American Politics, in 2004. The book chronicled Brazile’s time as Al Gore’s campaign manager and her experience as the first African-American to direct a major presidential campaign.

 

“Stirring the Political Pot with CNN’s Donna Brazile,” is part of Loyola’s 4th Annual Ed Renwick Lecture Series, happening in Roussell Hall (6363 St. Charles) at 7pm.
