Black History: Black and First

As we continue our observance of Black History Month, we take a look at black firsts.  For example, Dr. Monifa Mcknight is the first woman appointed as superintendent of the Montgomery County Public Schools.  There’s of course Kamala Harris, the first woman of color as Vice-President of the United States.  But what does it mean to be black and first?  Is it a big deal to the community and those who achieve it?
