Texas county swears in 17 black female judges after historic midterm election

Harris County, Texas, made history on Tuesday by swearing in 17 black female judges following a massive sweep in the November midterm elections.

The women were part of a local democratic campaign called “Black Girl Magic Texas” which pulled off what is believed to be the largest group of black female judges elected at the same time in the county’s history, KHOU 11 News reported.

Members of the public were invited to attend the swearing in ceremony, which saw a packed house, according to photos shared by KHOU

Nineteen African American women in total will be serving on the bench in 2019. The women have more than 200 years worth of experience between them all, the station noted.
