San Antonio Makes History With 1st Black Woman Mayor

 

A black woman by the name of Ivy Taylor began Tuesday’s special-called council meeting as the representative for 1/10th of the city, but by lunch, her constituency had grown to all of San Antonio.

She emerged from a field of four council members for the mayoral appointment, succeeding Julián Castro as mayor of the seventh-largest city in the U.S.

Taylor made history, becoming San Antonio’s first African-American mayor and the second woman to serve in the role. Lila Cockrell became the city’s first female mayor in 1975.
