19 Black Women Made History


19 Black women have made history after their sweep victory to judgeships in Harris County, the largest county in the state of Texas. A photo of them gathered all together in a courtroom has recently gone viral to celebrate #BlackGirlMagic. Blogged by: Deja Jones


The photo, which was taken in August, shows the women assembled as part of their “Black Girl Magic” campaign. It was tagged the #Houston19 and trended on Reddit and Twitter.


All of the 17 candidates for countywide judicial positions in Harris County, Texas won their races by double-digits. Each of them, all Democrats aged 31 to early 60’s, will fill the post in January for four-year terms in the civil, criminal, family, and probate courts.
