LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Stacey Abrams a Beacon for Black Women

I must admit I had no idea who Stacey Abrams was, but when I read this week’s issue of The Informer and saw her on the cover, I soon found out. How marvelous was it for me to see a Black woman making history at such a young age. I read in the story that this isn’t her first time making history and that had me further intrigued with the work she’s doing down in Georgia. I will make it my duty to keep up with national politics more and the Black candidates who are making strides.

Black Lives Matter in D.C.

I noticed a printing issue in this week’s paper but I don’t want to harp on that because you all do a supreme job every week with keeping the Black community in D.C. up on what’s happening around us. There were a few stories that stood out to me. I didn’t know that there was a native Washingtonian campaign happening that included no Black people. What a shame! And the Washingtonian should be ashamed of themselves! How can you exclude the people who gives this city all of its culture, heart and soul? I am, however, grateful that there was an immediate response led by good people like the brother Tony Lewis Jr. What a time.
