first black woman elected harvard law review president

January 31, 2017

Black women are doing the damn thing. I know you’re thinking, “Duh, since the beginning of time,” but hol’ up! We gotta acknowledge Black girl magic when we can! And the Harvard Law Review’s newest president Imelme Umana is the definition! The Nigerian student is the first Black woman to be elected to this position and is studying how stereotypes about Black women are perpetuated in political discourse. So, you know, just some light work for someone so young, gifted and Black. Shine on Imelme, we’re just happy to see you glow!
