Netroots ’12: watch Ask a Sista

Update: I’ve replaced the live stream video with the recording of the panel.

Our own Zerlina is speaking on a panel at Netroots Nation today, and you can watch it live right here at 10:30am EST (I’ll replace the live stream video with the recording of the panel when that becomes available, just like with yesterday’s video of Blogging for Transgender Equality). The panel’s called Ask a Sista: Black Women Muse on Politics, Policy, Pop Culture, and Scholarship (best panel title ever right?). It also features Cheryl Contee, Co-Founder & Partner at Fission Strategy and, “Dr. Goddess,” aka Kimberly C. Ellis, Ph.D., communications strategist jenifer daniels. The live streaming is made possible by AFSCME, Five Steps Forward and Free Speech TV. You can watch the video below – more video from Netroots can be found here.
