Keisha Lance Bottoms is the newly elected 60th mayor of Atlanta! She is the second African American woman to ever hold the position. Before she was mayor she was an active member of City Council for seven years. She is also a lawyer, former magistrate judge, and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
Bottoms ran a close race with opponent Mary Norwood. However, She was endorsed by many of Atlanta’s elite such as T.I., Tiny, Kandi Burruss, Killa Mike, Ludacris, and former mayor Kasim Reed.
Tuesday night she gave an amazing victory speech to all her supporters at her watch party. “For all the little girls out there, who need somebody to believe that you’re better than your circumstances, I want you all to remember that Black Girl Magic is real,” Bottoms said. “And across this city, we got Black Girl Magic, we got Black Boy Magic, we got White Girl Magic, we got White Boy Magic, we have Brown Girl Magic, Brown boy Magic and everything in between. This is a city for all of us and I’m so honored to be your 60th mayor.”
