From ESSENCE Magazine:

ESSENCE honors the women who are proven change agents, shape-shifters and power players across the nation and beyond. These women continuously fight the good fight by inspiring us and igniting movements—from the healthcare field to the Hill to Hollywood.

One of the women honored is SSMMA’s very own Mayor Vivian Covington. See what they wrote:

Mayor of University Park, IL On why being the first Black mayor of her village is important: “It’s not so much being Black—it’s being the first. That is so phenomenal. It’s an honor. For young girls who are looking up, I want to make a difference. I want to shine for you. I want to be your political mother.” Read more.
