Mariah Parker, is making headlines. Not because she was elected commissioner of GA 2nd District in Athens at the age of 26, not because she won by 13 votes but because of her swearing in. Unapologetically black, Mariah decided to be sworn in with the Malcolm X Autobiography and a fist in the air. “They asked if they would like the Bible and I said no. My mother asked if there was a copy of the Constitution around. No,” Parker said. “I wanted Malcolm’s book. I think they saw it coming.” Now that’s #BlackGirlMagic.
