Stacey Abrams is the progressive beacon of light the state of Georgia desperately needed. If she had been elected governor of the state–something she tried to achieve twice–the revered politician would have worked to reinstate women’s rights (she called for the immediate restoration of Roe v. Wade); protect voting rights (Abrams helped recruit 800,000 new voters for the 2020 presidential election); create more affordable housing; and enact gun safety measures. Abrams has also spoken out against lyrics being used against artists–specifically rappers–in court. "As someone who believes very staunchly in the First Amendment, I am deeply concerned about any movement towards using a person's word in their music or their writing as an indictment of who they are," she has said. Abrams, who was nominated last year for the Nobel Peace Prize, has a tenacity that few possess. Her intellect, fearlessness and ability to bring people together for a common cause makes Black Americans hopeful that the White House could be next on her agenda.
