Stacey Abrams Working Toward Becoming America’s First Black Female Governor

by | Jun 14, 2017 | Politics News | 1 comment

Stacey Abrams, the current Minority Leader of the House of Representatives of Georgia, could make history in 2018 by becoming the first African-American woman governor in the United States of America. Abrams has already accomplished a lot since entering the world of politics: according to her website, In 2010, Abrams became the first woman ever to become the head of a Georgia General Assembly party. Since May 2nd, 2017, she is running for the position of Governor.

A victory for Abrams would mean a victory for countless African-American girls who severely lack role models in politics. In 2014, there had only been one African-American woman to serve as Senator, two who held state-wide elected office and one who was a Mayor in an important city. Having Abrams as Governor of Georgia would show millions of African-American girls what they can accomplish and would inspire many to pursue a career in politics, one of the many fields that lack representation of this important part of the population.
