History has been made 17 black female judges have been elected in Harris County Texas. Between them all the women have more than 200 years of experience.Their election is believed to mark the largest group of black female judges elected at the same time in the county’s history.
One of the judges made a post on facebook and said I’ve waited for the reveal of this photo of 19 judicial candidates for several weeks – 19 Black women running for judge in Harris County, Houston, TX. This entire time I’ve thought of what I’d say the day we were able to share this moment in history with everyone. But really I’m humbled. Never did I imagine that the day I decided to run to be judge, I’d become a part of a club of phenomenal Black women, sisters-in-law, gifted, brilliant, strong – everything I hope to be! It is with great pride and excitement that I share this “Black Girl Magic” with you! Congratulations – you are truly black girl magic!
