To NAACP Carlos Henriquez > Tim Scott & Mia Love

On Tuesday two historic events took place involving black running from office. In Utah a land where over 60% of the population is Mormon (a religion that has an ahem, interesting history with black Americans) elected Mia Love to congress.

Pieces of the Dream
