Congrats to Loretta Lynch for Making "HerStory"

In the moment that it happened African-Americans broke another barrier. > > > > > > In times for such turmoil and the need for police reform we are confident that Loretta Lynch will continue on the legacy of Eric Holder.

The day of the vote the National Coalition's Black Youth Vote program was holding its Black Men & Boys event. We were on Capitol Hill as Loretta Lynch became the first black woman in history to become Attorney General for the United States.

We witnessed a moment in "Herstory" and witnessed a moment in history where bipartisanship won over partnership. >

> We thank President Obama for his choice of Ms. Lynch. It is a choice that benefits all Americans.

We want to thank Senator Mitch McConnell for finally calling the vote for Ms. Lynch to become the first black women and second woman in history to become U.S. Attorney General. >

After enduring the longest Senate confirmation process for the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch s now seventh in line for the U.S. Presidency. (Presidential line of succession)
