“With everything going on in the news cycle right now, we need a space where Black culture and critical analysis combine to advance the conversation. This increased role at REVOLT will allow me to serve my community in a meaningful way at a historic time,” Williams said of the opportunity.

After working as a public defender and private defense lawyer for years, the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law graduate transitioned into a television career where she’s served as a regular on cable news shows analyzing current events.
