Welcome to #InMyFeed, ESSENCE’s daily digital show that offers you a cheat sheet of the hottest topics already on your timeline.
Happy Election Day folks! Have you exercised your right to vote yet? There’s nothing more important today than getting out and exercising your right to vote! Ok, so there may be something equally important: Idris Elba was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive
. (Don’t even get me started on how late
PEOPLE mag is for this one.)
But I digress, back to voting.
ESSENCE has you covered on all things Mid-Term Elections. We will be updating this post all day
and tonight, we’re partying, with a purpose.
Make sure you’re tuned into the election night livestream with ESSENCE on our Facebook page.
Yes ESSENCE is covering the midterm elections in real time!
Will the country decide to continue on the path it is going, or will it decide to change course?
Will Andrew Gillum
be the first Black governor of Florida? Did Oprah help usher in Stacey Abrams
as the first Black woman governor in the United States? Tune in to our livestream tonight
and watch with us for election results, live commentary and an unforgettable sister circle.
And speaking of sister circle, ESSENCE compiled a list of Black girl magic, all of the Black women who are running for office in this election. We called it The Chisholm List
. Black women in leadership roles are imperative. Voter stickers are adorable. But voters also need to be informed about a candidate’s politics, their values, and who and what they are willing to fight for and against.
