African Women in US Politics

It’s often surprising how in some countries African migrants are struggling so deeply while in others they proceed their climb up to the top and manage to become active members of the society. Despite its incredible close-mindness and (not so) hidden racism, Italy has example of this too with former Integration Minister Cecile Kyenge. But in the US these kind of stories, migrants arrive as refugees and climb their way to the top, is much more common (as much as it can be). And the Liberian Naquetta Ricks is a living example of this.

Here is her story published by PRI.
