Blair Imani And 'Modern HERstory'

The midterm elections brought many firsts last night. On top of the record number of women heading to Congress — including the first woman of color from Massachusetts — we saw the first openly gay man elected as governor, and both the first Muslim and first Native American women elected to Congress.

Jim Braude was joined by activist and author Blair Imani, whose new book ‘Modern HERstory: Stories of Women and Nonbinary People Rewriting History’ profiles 70 different women, girls, and nonbinary people who come from underrepresented groups and have helped change our world.
