MHP Show MSNBC – College Debt

On May 19, 2013 GGE’s Community Organizing Intern, Brittany Brathwaite was featured on the Melissa Harris-Perry show discussing college debt, job prospects and the role that race, class and gender play when entering the workforce.

“I am always thinking about race and gender; when I was in a predominantly white institution I can’t tell you there was a day that I didn’t think about being black or being a woman. Especially when entering into a job, I think about what the dynamics are going to look like, what is my position and how I am going to show up. But it is true that we are very optimistic (about the future), that we want to believe that we are moving (in the right direction) and policies are showing that slowly.” -Brittany Brathwaite, 22
