ROANOKE COUNTY (WSLS 10) – The chair of the Democratic National Committee will speak tonight at Hollins University in Roanoke County.

Donna Brazile will hold a free event for students on campus at 7 p.m.

Brazile, who has worked on campaigns for many democratic presidential candidates including Jesse Jackson, Walter Mondale, Richard Gephardt, and Michael Dukakis. She was Al Gores campaign manager during the 2000 election.

The well-known author, who has also been a commentator for CNN will discuss the current political outlook with a focus on social justice.

In 2009, O, The Oprah Magazine chose Brazile as one of its 20 “remarkable visionaries” for the magazine’s first-ever O Power List. In addition, she was named among the 100 Most Powerful Women by Washingtonian magazine, and the Top 50 Women in America by Essence magazine. She also received the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s highest award for political achievement.

Brazile took over the DNC after the previous chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was forced out in the wake of a DNC email hack revealing staffers appeared to favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the primary process.

She was also the subject of controversy later in the campaign, when hacked emails released by WikiLeaks suggested that Brazile had obtained some of the primary debate questions and passed them along to Clinton
