Aisha Heywood’s early life experiences helped her become a focused results-oriented individual who is passionate about her community.The catalyst for her interest in community involvement and her political aspirations began with her mother, who introduced her to volunteerism and community building. Beginning with regular volunteer opportunities at Tropicana Community Services and the local Scarborough Boys and Girls Club, Aisha was eager to be involved with meeting the needs of others.

Aisha K. Staggers has been writing since middle school. She had her first major publication in her local newspaper’s entertainment section while a sophomore in high school, a publication in another state paper followed. Aisha has been contributing to various paper, magazines and textbooks for over 15 years.

In addition to her time as an instructor of social sciences in higher education, Aisha has served as a director of education and policy research centers, and on the staff of legislative commissions. Aisha previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats Women’s Caucus and has remained active in politics and public policy. She is an alumni of Albertus Magnus College and Fisk University where she earned Bachelor’s in Communications and Master’s Degree in Psychology, respectively, and completed the Education Policy Fellowship Program in 2008.

Currently, Aisha is Senior Editor for BookTrib, a division of the literary public relations firm, Meryl Moss Media and a HuffPost contributor. In addition to her own work, Aisha has written liner notes for a Prince tribute album, I Wish U Heaven released December 25 and available on YouTube. In 2018, she will be contributing to scholarly work on Prince and the Minneapolis Sound and sitting on an NYU panel for a conference commemorating the 30th anniversary of his Lovesexy album.

While Aisha enjoys writing about music, she feels the most critical discussions we can have today are centered around race and intersectionality because “you can’t fix a problem you don’t acknowledge, and not acknowledging the plight of women of color and specifically Black women is a problem.”

On this episode of Staggers State Of Things, Ms. Staggers talked about:

– A video montage of news anchors at Sinclair Broadcast Group stations across America regurgitating the same company-mandated script decrying “false news” went viral
– 45 being regarded as a subject and not a target in the Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian intervention in the last American presidential election
– The recent shooting at YouTube headquarters
– The 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr.
