This year was a transformative and historic one for Black women.
From entertainment to activism, Black women made sure their voices and impact were heard worldwide. While they set the tone for resistance this year — Black women voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in 2016, led organization in the Women’s March at the top of the year and maintain their position as one of fastest growing group of entrepreneurs — Black women have continued to break barriers and influence the masses.
In America’s history, we have never had a Black woman governor. Stacey Abrams is hoping to change that. She currently serves as the House Minority Leader for the Georgia General Assembly and the State Representative for the 89th House District. Abrams filed her candidacy in May 2017. We’ll be watching in 2018.
