US Voters Make Historic Firsts

Mark Robinson (R) was elected North Carolina's first Black Lieutenant Governor. As expected, Ritchie Torres (D-NY) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) officially became the first two openly Black LGBQT+ national lawmakers. In Tennessee, Torrey Harris (D) will become the first LGBTQ+ member of that state's legislature. Marilyn Strickland (pictured) will be the first African-American to represent Washington and the first Korean-American women in Congress. In Wisconsin, Sambah Baldeh will become the first Muslim in the Wisconsin Assembly and probably the first Gambian-American in any state legislature.

Robinson (pictured), the father of the Tuskegee Airmen and Ethiopian Airlines. They tell their story while seeking to convert the Fuller Mansion into their new museum.
