History Is Made First African American Woman Sworn In As U.S Attorney General

Loretta Lynch made U.S history as she was sworn in as the new U.S. attorney general on Monday, replacing Eric Holder. Lynch is the country’s first African-American woman to serve in the role.  Her nomination was held up for more than five months over politicking in the Senate.

“She’s seen and understands the injustices that have taken place in the past and so therefore she’s uniquely also equipped to deal with what’s going on and do the kinds of investigations that will restore faith to Americans in their justice system,” said Rep. Greg Meeks, D-New York.
