#BlackGirlMagic: 17 Black Female Judges Sworn Into Office In Harris County, Texas

Not 1, not 2, but 17 black women were sworn in as judges in Harris County, Texas on Tuesday, January 1. The swearing-in which took place at NRG Stadium in Houston comes after their history-making wins in the November 2018 midterm elections. This is what we call Black Girl Magic!

The women who were part of a local Democratic campaign tagged “Black Girl Magic,” make up what is believed to be the largest group of black female judges ever elected at the same time in US history. The women include Judges Shannon Baldwin, Lucia Bates, Ronnisha Bowman, Sharon Burney, Lori Chambers Gray, Dedra Davis, Linda Dunson, Toria Finch, Angela Graves-Harrington, Cassandra Holleman, Erica Hughes, Tonya Jones, Latosha Lewis Payne, Michelle Moore, Sandra Peake, Germaine Tanner and LaShawn Williams.

Black Girl MagicAccording to U.S. Census figures, African-Americans make up about 20% of Harris County’s population. Tuesday’s swearing-in has increased the number of black female judges in Harris County from 8 to 25, according to the Harris County Democratic Party.

We hope this will inspire more women of all colours around the world to run for democratic offices.

Can we all repeat: Black Girl Magic!
